Monitor the Health of Your Forests

using geospatial data analytics

The Business Challenge

Severe pest and disease outbreaks are a serious threat to managed forests. Negative effects to tree health, for example, tree mortality or growth suppression, result in considerable loss of timber yield, leading to a reduced income and wood supply for the forestry sector. In addition, to date, pest and disease control tends to be reactive.

Once recognised, large sums are spent on manually identifying affected trees via costly ground or aerial surveys to prevent or reduce the spread to other forest assets. Risk modelling, early identification, and monitoring the rate of infection help forestry management companies take measures to mitigate these risks and reduce the associated cost impact.

Detailed health assessment

Assess count & volume of affected trees and extract timber value.

Detect changes early

Detect and age changes in forest health and track the spread over time.

Locate health issues

Map the location and extent of affected forest compartments.

Signs of stress

Identify abnormalities that may indicate stress due to pest/disease.

Powerful Insight

Our unique geospatial intelligence, which can be used to monitor for signs of tree stress that indicate health/pest issues in forests, is derived from the sophisticated analysis of earth observation data and imagery involving cutting-edge data science and machine learning.

You can access our insight through a subscription to our online geodata portal. Data layers can also be exported to your own GIS (Geographic Information System).

Our Forest Health Monitoring Service

Rezatec provides a landscape intelligence data service to supply users with regular information and alerts on forest health over the whole of their Forest assets. Using time-series of radar satellite derived data, Rezatec can identify changes which are indicative of stress, and could be due to an outbreak of pest or disease.

This remote detection method means that users can proactively locate, track and monitor an outbreak. In turn, reducing the need for costly surveys and enabling a faster response to the threat to maximise the associated timber value. These results can be integrated into existing GIS systems or delivered through our dedicated, cloud-based geospatial data intelligence portal.
