Have your say on forestry calculators

Access to fit-for-purpose online calculators is an important part of routine small and large-scale forestry. Over the years Forest Growers Levy Trust has invested in the development of a variety of freely available calculators. These tools range from species-specific growth calculators, such as the Cypress calculator, through to multi-faceted analysis tools such as the Woodlot Analysis Tool and a small forest planning tool, Tree Farmer, that is available in early prototype form.

Understanding the opportunities for interconnectivity within these tools, ensuring that they are scientifically up-to-date and providing longer term continuity, while ensuring the tools continue to evolve to the changing needs of forest growers, are critical for ongoing value realization.

To do this, the team at Forest Growers Research are working with an independent consultant to review the existing calculators on their website. The aim is to understand how useful and used the current suite of calculators are to the industry and identify any gaps or opportunities for more support digitally. The first stage is a qualitative survey and we would love to hear from you. To complete the survey click here
