As forestry is a major contributing economic factor to the New Brunswick population, it is crucial that we place significant efforts into the preservation of our forests.
Aerial views help with the strategic planning, protection, and mitigation initiatives for our forests. Aerial surveys provided by Forest Protection play an integral role in promoting strong and healthy forests in our province by providing real-time status updates of our forests.
Our aerial surveys offer a better view and understanding of insect infested regions of New Brunswick forests, indicating where infestation is coming from, what it is caused by, and the overall extent of damage. Such photography provides accurate views of our forests so that proactive measures can be taken to help mitigate further infestation. The aircraft platform operated by our pilots is a smart choice due to the endurance and speed capabilities, enabling our team to navigate the province in a short amount of time. Forest Protection’s experienced pilots are trained to work with external teams to conduct defoliation and forest health surveys.
Aerial surveys are also an essential part of strategizing conduct of forestry work on the ground. With a better view of the topography of the land, aerial photography aids in planning forestry and harvesting projects, indicates where to lay logging roads, and identify species and wildlife within specific blocks.
