Land Information

Good forest mapping provides many benefits to forest owners:

  • Due diligence and feasibility study - making sure that what is described is really there with no unpleasant surprises.
  • Budgeting and forecasting - providing an accurate definition of the planted/stocked area, treatments, costs and revenues.
  • Planning and operations - maps are an important tool for harvest planning and engineering and play a vital role in tracking, recording and reporting operations that are performed on a forest.
  • Legal and compliance - maps provide excellent support for resource consent applications and are helpful in cases where legal boundaries may not line up with planted boundaries. Mapping hazards makes operations safer.
