Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.
ForestTECH 2023 is finally here and last-minute tickets are still available – if you are quick. We kick off in Rotorua, New Zealand, next week and Melbourne, Australia the following week. Accommodation at the Rotorua venue booked out last month! Hundreds of forest resource managers, inventory foresters, remote sensing, GIS and mapping specialists are attending from across Australasia and beyond.
In other stories this month, we would like to highlight Scion’s work on an automatic forest health monitoring system, which uses satellite imagery to identify and monitor disease in forests. The focus so far is on the red needle cast outbreaks on the East Coast, but the project’s success shows a far wider potential.
Stories this issue:
- Increasing sawlog production from existing forests
- Council’s proposed new rules could cost millions
- A world-first for nature-based reporting
- War on pine needle disease in NZ’s planted forests
- Automatic forest health monitoring system unveiled
- Seed shortage & fire puts Victorian forests at risk
- BC removing single-use plastic wrap in tree planting
- Remote data collection technologies being profiled
- The trees come back – looking back 42 years
So, sit back, grab a drink, and join us as we delve into the latest news and developments in the world of remote sensing, forest data capture and tree crop management.
