Resource Management Planning, Research and Assessment
Timberland Consultants (2001), provides research, assessment, and planning services at levels ranging from forest-level management plans to site-specific treatment prescriptions and visual impact assessments. Our GIS department enables us to complete analyses of timber and non-timber values including riparian, soil stability, ungulate winter range, equivalent clearcut area, and visual impact assessments. Timberland uses WOODLOT and other growth and yield models to complete stand- and forest-level yield analyses.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Mapping and Analysis
Timberland’s GIS department incorporates the expertise of forest technicians and programmers to ensure high quality analytic and cartographic products. The division is a key contributor to Timberland's resource planning, assessment, and development projects, and subcontracts GIS services to other firms. The GIS department uses ARC/INFO, ARCVIEW, MicroStation, and MAPS 3D, with full computer and plotter support, to accommodate the requirements of a multitude of clients.
