Tools and technology work hand in hand, and have improved the
forester’s efficiency and access to information. The skilled workforce
now uses state-of-the-art technology to carry on the traditions of one
of the world’s oldest industries.
Nowdays, foresters are more likely to use an iPad, GPS, laser, or
satellite. Of course, the tape measure and traditional map are still
common pieces of equipment.
The iPad is commonly used by Forestry Corporation staff today
to access maps, take photographs and adjust vegetation and water
course information easily and immediately.
