Forest Management

Use Patchworks to improve your planning workflow by bridging the gap between strategic and operational planning problems. As the leading spatial planning software package, Patchworks creates long-term, spatially explicit output that is a sound precursor to an approved forest management plan.

Most forest planning software divides the forest management problem into strategic and operational phases, and provides different tools to solve these problems in isolation. The result is that strategic plans fail to consider operational realities, and operational plans lose sight of the bigger picture. Patchworks delivers a comprehensive solution that always tracks operational issues across long time horizons. It ensures that your strategic forecasts are based on realistic assumptions, your operational plans are consistent with long-term goals, and that the impacts of long-term spatial issues have been realistically considered.
