Surveys and Mensuration

Assessing timber volume and quality

Gathering accurate information about your forest is one of the key aspects of a successful timber operation.

Our Timber Harvesting Staff are trained in survey techniques to assess standing timber volume and quality. We have a number of electronic callipers to aid tariffs and volume estimates. Many of our Staff are also equipped with GPS technology to be able to integrate captured data into our mapping services.

In terms of formal surveying and mensuration as part of our overall harvesting and marketing delivery we can offer –

  • Timber volume and quality assessment reports
  • Full or partial Tariff surveys to FC standards and procedures
  • GIS and digital mapping including aerial photography interpretation
  • Reports on roading requirements and forest planning optimisation
