Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
It’s been a busy month. We have another information-packed issue for you.
ForestTECH 2023 is kicking off next month with events in New Zealand, Australia and virtually online. This technology series has now been running for 17 years and brings together every year, hundreds of forest resource managers, inventory foresters, remote sensing, GIS and mapping specialists from across Australasia. We have included a couple of stories below that are linked to the event, highlighting pre/post workshops, technologies being covered and a new student competition that has been set up.
It would pay to book early for ForestTECH 2023 as the early bird rates end on 13 Oct and accommodation in Rotorua has already sold out (other accommodation options in Rotorua are listed on the website).
Other tech stories in this month’s issue include the use of AI-enabled fire lookouts in Australia (the fire season has already begun), a new international collaboration for Scion around AI technologies and the release of New Zealand trial results with the M-Planter mechanised planter.
