The Finnish forest industry estimates annual efficiency gains to be ~70 M€ in handling the seasonal variation of wood supply operations. Terrain and forest road trafficability issues are causing significant production shortfalls and pose a risk in a future with shorter frost periods due to climate change. Also in warm situations soil moisture hinders wood production operations.
Forecasting harvesting conditions have a great potential value that will be demonstrated in this pilot. In addition carbon emissions from forest land change differently depending on the harvesting methods used. The pilot will highlight this in the service to motivate climate smart operations.
