Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
Last week 300+ industry leaders attended the latest Carbon Forestry 2023 event in Rotorua, New Zealand. With exact details on upcoming changes to the ETS still uncertain (along with who the next Government is after October’s election), there was lively debate on the future direction of carbon forestry and carbon markets. One thing is certain though – forestry will continue to play an important part of the country’s climate policy into the future. Stay tuned for a full write-up about the event.
Talking about climate – the Green Triangle will soon have an extensive network of AI-powered bushfire detection cameras. They will be an essential asset heading into the next bushfire season and show the benefits of an increasingly digital forest. We also see Lidar continuing to evolve, with the soon-to-be world’s first commercial Lidar satellite network dedicated to 3D mapping and creating ‘digital twins’, and another on the expansion of mapping in the Bay of Plenty.
Lastly, we have teamed up with WIDE Trust to offer a limited number of young graduates and students complimentary registrations to attend the NZ leg of November’s ForestTECH 2023 series. Have a look at the article below for full details.
