Wood Sourcing for a Sawmill in Challenging Conditions
- Metsä Group -
METHODOLOGY IN BRIEF
With satellite images and ground reference data, we estimated the standing inventory and soil characteristics.
Optimization while considering multiple variables including harvest schedules, and existing and future road networks.
MORE INFORMATION ON THE METHODOLOGY
To create the plan we first mapped the standing stock and soil characteristics using RapidEye-5m ground resolution satellite images and field sample plots measured with TRESTIMA. These were then used as input into a wood flow optimisation program which considered all costs related to wood sourcing as well as the legislative framework under which the lease areas are managed.
