Forsite completed an individual tree inventory for 30,000 ha of forest land in the East Kootenay’s. This included segmenting each tree crown out, analyzing it, and then assigning numerous attributes to the tree (species, height, DBH, etc).

Canfor required significantly more detailed forest inventory information than is currently available in the provincial VRI in order to better manage log supply to its mills.

The operational level inventory product provided Canfor with cruise like information across large areas and enabled significantly more detailed planning. This information made it feel as if a blindfold had been removed for the planners.

Results consisted of point and polygon files for all trees over 10m tall indicating tree species, height, dbh, BA, crown size, merchantable volumes, and volumes by log size.
