By: FMNZ  06-Dec-2011

Forest inventory is the measurement of trees to ascertain what is actually growing within the forest boundaries. The data is collected for several different reasons. It may be for use in growth modelling applications, harvest planning or for quality control and contractor payment as well as many other applications. Good quality inventory data is invaluable as it provides knowledge of the resource and enables a forest manager to make the best decisions for that forest.
