TOOLS for FORESTERS

Forests provide timber but also support biodiversity and other public benefits. We map specific forest sites using a Natural Capital Accounting approach to quantify forestry stocks and the various flows of benefits.

By assessing the quantity, quality and location of forest stocks, we can determine the flows of commercial timber production and other benefits such as carbon sequestration, water retention, biodiversity and recreation.

Looking at different land management scenarios, we can co-develop tools for foresters to enable robust and transparent management decision-making to enhance sustainability.
