Stocking surveys are a crucial part to any successful reforestation plan. IRM unmanned aerial systems can provide a more efficient way to determine stocking levels. Our unmanned aerial vehicles combined with high resolution cameras provide detailed mosaics that are then used to generate a seedling count. Using cutting edge photogrammetry software seedlings are counted to determine stocking density of stands. Unmanned aerial systems not only are an efficient solution, but also provide physical data for future reference.
