GIS technology profoundly and positively impacts the way land managers, timber managers, and forestry specialists manage timber resources. Esri`s GIS software helps foresters and land managers meet the needs of their forests, the demands of society, and the pressures of economic efficiency.
Dead trees and wood from forest management can be chipped and dried for gasification. The electricity generated can offset electrical costs while the consumption of waste wood offsets disposal costs.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its carbon content to CO2, but gasification sequesters a portion of it as charcoal...
SedEvent is an event-driven, automatic grab sampling system that provides a simple and practical method of accurately determining suspended sediment and nutrient loads.
While suspended sediment concentration (SSC) cannot be directly measured accurately or reliably, turbidity has been shown to be an excellent surrogate for SSC. Turbidity is caused by suspended particulate matter such as clay, silt, algae, organic and inorganic chemicals and acids like fertilizers, and microscopic organisms like harmful bacteria....

The wholesale nursery market plays a vital role in the green-industry supply chain. With hundreds of thousands of acres planted across North America, nursery operations of varying sizes provide containerized and field-grown trees, shrubs and perennials. Nursery growers make significant capital investments in their crops, many of which are in the ground or in containers for years before they’re ready for market. These nursery products grace home and commercial landscapes, city parks and urban forests....
Forestry, by its very nature, takes workers into tough outdoor environments.

Foresters have used FlexiPlugs and FlexiTrays to successfully start deciduous and coniferous trees, including loblolly as well as white and red pine. Our products provide optimal water retention and aeration and also promote quick rooting of cuttings. The stabilized aspect of Flexi products gives forestry companies more freedom when it comes to transporting and transplanting young seedlings.

An easy-to-use e.Cognition ruleset to fully measure tree parameters.
This ruleset has been developed and applied during the course of various projects with a large German State Forest Administration and other private forest owners. It is designed to create a polygon shapefile representing single tree crowns. It can process all types of forest stands, including very young and mature stands simultaneously. During the processing, a stand is divided into homogeneous groups based on tree height. Each group is then...
Tea plant is a shrub that develops in tropical or subtropical climates, coming from continental China, India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Japan, Nepal, Austria and Kenya. Tea trees are cultivated in gardens, huge forests of small trees. The bigger producers worldwide are China and India; both produce the 50% of the total. The tea production is very competitive all around the world. Not technified irrigation systems, obsolete and the lack of water are the most important factors that reduce the tea production.
