Drones for Forestry Industry
Drones are being used by forestry companies to survey and measure timber stockpile materials, everything from logs and sawn lumber, to woodchips and sawdust, as well as biomass and lawn & garden stockpiles. These Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) replace the need to rely on third-party surveyors, which can save forestry companies time and money, while increasing worker safety.
Kespry is a provider of automated drone systems that are actively in use at large mining and construction companies to measure stockpile inventories of aggregate, cement and construction materials. That same drone technology is being applied to the forestry industry to automatically measure the size, volume and value of forestry stockpiles and distribution yards.
