Forestry Surveys

Aerial Mapping, Forest Management, LiDAR, Optical Imagery and GIS

Aerial survey techniques are now changing the game in the forestry sector in numerous ways, from assisting with pre-purchasing surveys to crop management inspections and visual marketing aids. At Skye Survey, we can provide a comprehensive package of aerial survey solutions utilising our own UAV platforms, that are ready to be deployed anywhere in Scotland. With the capability to survey up to 250ha in a single day, we eliminate the need for costly ground-based surveys over rough terrain.

Whether it is a survey you require of general operations including drainage management, road construction and harvesting, to more detailed survey and analysis of individual trees, from trunk volumes, widths and crown heights, we would be happy to work with you to develop the most cost-effective flight mission specifications for your project.
