• Detailed aerial surveys to inform forestry management

When you need to collect data on woodland composition or health, or identify tree species over a wide area, Fera has the aerial imaging resources, GIS and remote-sensing expertise to produce actionable data to support your forestry-management decisions.

Our fixed-wing and rotary Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are ideally suited to collecting imagery data over woodland and forested areas, which may be difficult to access on the ground. Fera also have a range of sensors that can be fitted to these UAVs allowing us to collect high-resolution (2.5 - 5cm) multispectral data specific to your needs.

We can rapidly collect very high resolution data over large areas, and use our GIS and remote sensing expertise to analyse and interpret both satellite and UAV imagery – producing the essential information you need for effective forestry and woodland management.
