Silviculture includes pruning and thinning operations. In one twelve month period, we organised and supervised over 12,000 hectares of silvicultural operations. This involved having over 300 workers in our forests on a day to day basis. We have stringent quality control and safety procedures as well as a robust payment system which is based upon the pruning or thinning prescription standard and actual area completed.

Forest Management NZ Ltd - From Establishment to Harvesting > Services > Forest Inventory

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. It may be for use in growth modelling applications, harvest planning or for quality control and contractor payment as well as many other applications. Forest inventory is the measurement of trees to ascertain what is actually growing within the forest boundaries.
