Forestry

Forestry makes up 30% of world’s land surface,

covering 4 billion hectares

and is a strategic global asset.

The forestry sector contributes over $116 billion value add annually to the global economy and is 

the greatest carbon repository in the world.

Accurate and timely forest inventory data is key for economic decision making.

Traditional inventory calculation methods are prohibitively expensive resulting in the majority of forest inventories being out of date.
