Forestry companies strive to manage their forests to ensure their health and longevity, but this can be a challenge when taking into account factors that transcend management area boundaries. 

One key factor that forest managers must consider is the detection, management, and control of pest outbreaks. Pests such as mountain pine beetle, spruce budworm, and emerald ash borer occur at varying rates in forests across Canada and can decimate tree populations, moving from forest stand to forest stand and leaving dead, damaged, and unmerchantable trees in their wake. Early detection is critical to the control and management of pest outbreaks in our forests.

Silvacom's Approach to Pest Management 

Read on to discover how Silvacom utilizes remote sensing technology, careful planning processes, and expert analysis to assist forestry companies in detecting, controlling, and managing pest outbreaks in Canadian forests.
