Fundamental to growing and nurturing a forest is understanding how much timber you have, how fast it is growing and the optimal time to cut it down.
Ents use a variety of forest inventory techniques to measure stand characteristics and industry-accepted growth models to estimate future product mixes and volumes. The in-house consultants have extensive experience and the requisite skills to design, plan, and execute forest inventories and analyse mensuration data.
W Edwards Deming (1900 - 1993) summed up forest inventory best:
"In God we trust; all others must bring data."
"You can expect what you inspect."
"You can't manage what you don't measure."
