Forestry Conservation


Forestry and Conservation

Forestry is a broad field that includes the creation, conservation, and management of forests in ways that are beneficial both to humans and the environment.
Hexagon Geospatial technology can help users see how forest data has changed over time, identify characteristics of the soil, and more. Using this information, conservationists can manage current forest presence and find the best course of action in planting new trees.
