The Silvere concept
A level of precision forestry has never seen before
Forestry value chain plays a significant role in the global economy and will have an important role in the fight against climate change and ensuring high level of biodiversity. Still the practices applied in many parts of the forestry value chain are the same as they were 100 years ago. Silvere's precision forestry concept brings a change with its new practices. It brings together the fundamental research in individual technical disciplines and the forestry management science from the last 15 years.
The philosophy behind Silvere's precision forestry concept is to move away from forestry management based on averages per forestry compartment of 1.0–10.0 hectares of similar age and type forest to making decisions based on the precise measurements of an individual tree. Based on the early assessments, Silvere's precision forestry concept could increase the labour productivity by more than 10 times and increase the actively managed forest land return from ~4.5% average to 6.0–6.5%.
