ForestTECH is this region’s most popular annual independent forestry technology series. This year, in addition to advances being made in remote sensing and forest inventory, like ForestTECH 2020, one of the two days has been set aside to profile the very latest developments in forest establishment, mechanised planting and silviculture.
This year, in addition to two days of conferencing and exhibitions three additional tech workshops and meetings have been set up for Rotorua delegates around ForestTECH 2021. This capitalises delegates who will be travelling into Rotorua to attend ForestTECH 2021. All are free to ForestTECH 2021 delegates but a booking is required.
What’s being covered?
1. A short two-hour workshop on Imagery & Remote Sensing with ArcGIS is been given by Eagle Technology on the morning of Monday 22 November at the conference venue.
2. A half-day workshop focusing on changes to the Forestry Emissions Trading Scheme and an update on National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry is being given by Te Uru Rākau at Scion on the morning of Monday 22 November.
3. A half-day Remote Sensing Cluster Group meeting will run at Scion on the afternoon of Monday 22 November. The meeting will combine recent research focussing on tree inventory and detection with an update on the “Tools for Foresters” initiative. Presentations will be given by both researchers and industry and will focus on key end user applications of remotely sensed data.
