Snags are an important component of any forest and provide habitat for a number of wildlife species. Unmanned aerial vehicles now provide a means to monitor the condition of snags for wildlife.
IRM’s skilled pilots can locate snags, fly under the forest canopy and capture high resolution video of snags. This provides wildlife biologists with video of all sides of the snag to determine snag condition for wildlife habitat.
Combined with IRM’s mapping capabilities snag coordinates can be recorded for revisits in the future.
