Many of the challenges faced by the forestry industry throughout the execution of work can now be hugely improved through the use of drone technology. Previous issues reviewing large sections of forest in hard-to-access areas by foot, and the expensive use of helicopters to carry out tasks such as plant volume review and tree health are now possible for a fraction of the cost and time.

  • Sales & marketing photography
