Digitisation of the forest industry is on the rise. Usage of Södra’s digital forestry application, the forest owner’s app, has risen 30% in 2016. This is a marked increase compared with the preceding year and provides opportunities for increased nature conservation and improved profitability, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
In 2012, Södra launched the forest owner’s app. Four years after the launch, there has been a drastic increase in number of users, services and volume of forest data in the app. While initially only property borders could be viewed, forest owners can now track ongoing forestry assignments in real time, and, in principle, manage their own forests through a green forestry plan directly in the app.
“The digital technology represents an enormous development, both for forest owners and for us,” says Håkan Larsson, President of the Södra Skog business area. “We have improved overview and the ability to make better decisions while contributing to both increased production and improved nature conservation.”
