Autoforestation Mode: ON

Project description

Innovative platform for precise reforestation management

The current deforestation rate made restoring woodlands a priority for nations. However, this remains a massive challenge worldwide. Forest restoration has inherent problems of scale, speed, efficiency and cost and the modest results of massive reforestation projects demonstrate that even the current advanced solutions are slow. Moreover, forestry lacks digitalisation, precision, and efficiency compared to other sectors. The EIC-funded Forest Maker project proposes a new generation integrated automated planter platform – an all-in-one solution – that performs the entire planting and data collection process without stopping. The platform relies on software to create a digital twin of forest for precise and easy management.

Objective

At the current deforestation rate, it is estimated that there will be no forests left in between 100 to 200 years. As such, restoring woodlands has become a priority for nations but remains a massive challenge worldwide. Destruction is easy but forest restoration has inherent problems of scale, speed, efficiency, and cost. The modest results of massive reforestation projects show that the current state-of-the-art solutions cannot get the job done fast enough. Forestry is significantly behind, compared to other sectors, in digitalization, precision and efficiency.
Forest Maker is a new-generation integrated automated planter platform - an all-in-one solution that performs the entire planting and data collection process without stopping, guided by software for the creation of a digital twin of forest for precise and easy management.
