Savvy foresters know the market, know their inventory, and know how to sell it. Use ArcGIS to monitor sales activities and fulfill demand-driven production. Analyze markets by exploring sales scenarios. Better manage your forest’s portfolio, attract investors, and collaborate with stakeholders. You will respond to sales opportunities faster if you have a current timber sale map showing ready-to-harvest aspen, spruce, fir, or other species. Create and publish GIS maps for the bidding process.
Plan today’s investments by tracking current tree inventory in specific forest areas and projecting the future value of timber growth.
Reduce shipping costs by effectively routing and scheduling timber deliveries. Implement fuel saving green initiatives to minimize carbon emissions.
Manage chain of custody and traceability by tracking certified material from the forest to the end product.
Collaborate with stakeholders via GIS web services and make tools, data, and maps available to everyone that needs them. Anyone can explore forest geographic information to stay on top of business challenges and opportunities. Combine your forest company’s data with other authoritative data such as Landsat imagery or climate charts. Show it on a common map and publish it online. Learn more about ArcGIS.
