New Inventory Approaches/

With the availability of high resolution remote-sensed data, web accessible devices, cloud hosting and machine learning techniques, a new generation of forest inventory approaches and solutions are available to better manage forest assets.

 

Tesera’s high resolution inventory solutions are a blend of area-based (using LiDAR, colour infrared imagery, ground plot data, complimented with terrain and climate data) and individual tree crown delineation to provide a comprehensive and reliable inventory solution.

forest inventory analysis

START WITH THE
SPECIES

Get a stronger grasp of any landscape’s species composition with accurate productivity estimates for every polygon. Enjoy the benefits of more accurate treatment/response curves and enhanced silviculture prescriptions across the board, ensuring all of your growth and yield projections are aligned with on-the-ground reality.

AGGREGATE AND VIEW
DIFFERENT SCALES

Take advantage of consistent and homogeneous inventory estimates. HRIS lays out microstands using LIDAR and Colour Infrared (CIR) to produce reliable, high resolution polygons. See all attributes at a grid cell level with minimal impact on boundary conditions.

LOCALIZED
LOG PROFILES

Get localized stand and stock tables for more accurate diameter distributions by species. Merchandize your timber using client-defined merchantability specs to produce accurate and localized log profiles for each microstand. Harness the benefits of access to localized stand and stock tables and log profiles by improving supply chain management while reducing harvest planning costs and minimizing delivered wood costs and cruising.

FLEXIBLE
ADDITIONAL DATA & TOOLS

Add specific attributes to your dataset by calling on our expert team of programmers and geomatics engineers to customize your personal HRIS inventory. Our interdisciplinary and experienced team of planners/modellers, biometricians, agronomists, data scientists and data analysts is eager to provide additional attributes within the HRIS system and tool set that will meet your specific needs.

FORECASTING
CASHFLOW

Get more accurate and timely forecasts on the ROI on all of your silviculture treatments with HRIS’ clean and accessible collection of data: from inventory, stand & stock tables, log/product profiles and growth & yield data, and more. Ensure that goods and services (e.g. carbon/timber/habitat supply), wildfire hazard risks and cashflow can be accurately forecasted through time.

IMPROVED
GROWTH & YIELD

Ensure that site productivity, volume and other growth and yield-related attribute estimates are always accurate, reliable, and localized across multiple scales. HRIS’s robust data set gives you the tools to make more informed decisions when developing silviculture prescriptions for each polygon.

BETTER FOR
FORESTERS

Access to HRIS inventory data and tool suite provides foresters with a comprehensive view of resources on the landscape and enables better management according to land stewardship principles./

BETTER FOR
COMPANIES

Boost your ROI and enhance planning throughout the supply chain with accurate and reliable data for harvest planning to ensure the right logs are delivered to mill to meet market demand./

BETTER FOR
COMMUNITIES

Use HRIS inventory data to work together to optimize all forest attributes including wildlife habitat, fresh water, carbon biomass, and support the local economy while sustaining your social licence to operate./
