Farm & Forestry Planner - TreeMapper App


26 Oct 2021

Share

The processes involved in running small to medium farming and forestry enterprises can be very complex.

This is why Private Forests Tasmania and the Forest Practices Authority have invested in the development of a farm and forestry property planning app (TreeMapper).

The ‘Property Planning Mapper’ mobile application would deliver a handful of mapping and calculator tools to provide immediate farm-planning benefit for landowners, consultants, planners, contractors, and land agents. This will improve the easiness of planning, mapping, and managing properties to expand the plantation estate and allow greater integration of forestry into the agricultural landscape.

The app includes a range of modules to assist farm forestry planning at property scale including Paddock Mapper, Forest Description, Crop/Species Decision Support, Farm Woodlot, TOPEX Score and NPV tools.

The app will be compatible with all web-enabled desktops, tablets and phones.  Functionality will be made available for offline usage (i.e. outside phone or Wi-Fi range) for some of the tools.

Esk Mapping & GIS commenced work on the system in August 2021 with a view to commencing testing prior to December 2021.

TreeMapper will be available for download from both the PFT and FPA website.
