Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
Thank you to everyone who attended ForestTECH 2022 last month. The latest forest technology series, which was hosted in New Zealand, Australia and online, attracted well over 300 delegates from 12 different countries. This was another excellent (a record) turnout from tree crop managers and remote sensing specialists. Links to the presentations, from both legs of the series, have now been distributed to all delegates.
As a special bonus to our readers, we’ve included an interesting video presentation from Cassio Gomes, who works for Eldorado Brasil Celulose in Brazil. He spoke on their experience and ongoing development of using mechanised planters on steeper slopes for Eucaluptus. The video is listed below. You can also see the full summary of the event, along with photos, on the ForestTECH 2022 website or using the link below.
As 2022 comes to a close, it’s been a year where Covid-19 and disrupted supply chains have been replaced by a return to ‘normal’ operations, but with high global inflation and shifting timber demand. Here are the top 5 read stories from ForestTECH News this year:
- Tech advancements and trials with mechanised planting
- A 6.2m electric drone for forest thinning
- Ernslaw One announces NZ forest sales
- US$36m raised for drone reforestation efforts
- First high-resolution global vegetation height map
This will be the last ForestTECH News issue for 2022 and we’ll be back in February 2023. Enjoy your Christmas break – if one is being taken – and thank you for your support and input over this last year.
