The term "Precision Forestry" is being used more frequently in the forest products industry. This paper defines two broad categories of precision forestry as 1) using geospatial information in forest management and planning, and 2) site-specific silvicultural operations. One case study is presented for site-specific application of herbicides and fertilizers in herbaceous weed control activities. In this case study, the operational characteristics and application costs are discussed for a new…

Planning Optimum Logging Operations through Precision Forestry Approaches

In this study, it was aimed to determine optimum logging operations by using Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques as one of the effective tools of a precision forestry approach. In the

Seeing the soil through the trees: the utility of stem shape and taper in the butt swell for predicting soil depth in Australian Pinus plantations

An increasing proportion of the world’s wood is grown in plantation forests, so improving management of these forests is important for global wood supply, as well as for the profitability and

Determination of Riparian Vegetation Biomass from an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

The need to rely on accurate information about the wood biomass available in riparian zones under management, inspired the land reclamation authority of southern Tuscany to develop a research based

Use of lidar-derived landscape parameters to characterize alternative harvest system options in the Inland Northwest

ABSTRACT As innovative harvest systems are developed, the extent to which they can be utilized on the landscape based on machine capabilities is often unclear to forest managers. Spatial decision
