In ForestTECH, Issue56, Video by FIEA

Adam Dick is a Science Advisor at the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre, Canadian Forest Service and joins us from Fredericton. Adam was one of the champions that brought lidar enhanced forest inventory (EFI) to New Brunswick, which has resulted in the province having wall-to-wall lidar coverage and EFI predictions. From academia, to industry, to provincial and federal government roles, Adam shares his thoughts on his current research focus on digital supply chains in forestry and the opportunities that lie ahead of us. Adam exemplifies how the profile of a forester has evolved to include more digital skills.
