Tree diseases threaten forest health and reduce wood merchantability. Satellite monitoring helps detect deviations on time and take proper actions for pathology management.
Reforestation is an important practice to restore wood resources and improve the ecological situation. Remote sensing can simplify foresters’ efforts in reforestation management and assessing young forest health.
With large amount of satellite imagery and analytical software becoming freely available, even small forest organizations or forestry specialists can leverage the remote sensing technology to monitor land use and protect global forests.
