Precise information on urgent early germination and seedling care sites with the new Wuudis and Terramonitor service.

Forest management arrears have increased since the 1990s. In Finland, there were 1.5 million hectares of seedling care and first thinning arrears in 2019, according to the Natural Resources Center. There would be thousands of new factors of unfinished nursing work on an annual basis.

Wuudis Solutions and Terramonitor have entered into a co-operation agreement where the companies' competence strengths are offered as an extensive data and forest management control and quality management service through the Wuudis service. The service will initially be available in Finland for pilots, where Wuud will be further developed for the business needs of pilot companies, forest management companies and joint forests. At the same time, the service concept is piloted e.g. In Spain and Africa.

“We have integrated Terramonitor’s satellite monitoring and retrieval services from open data sources into the Wuudis service, enabling forest operators and forest owners to become aware of urgent early harvesting and seedling management sites in their forests. The need for seedling care is based on the VESA index developed by Terramonitor, an assessment of seedling eutrophication and an analysis of the need for seedling care, ”reveals the CEO Seppo Huurinainen Wuudikselta.

“The global satellite data service developed by Terramonitor covers the entire globe. In Finland, we have developed the VESA index service, which is based on optical and constantly updated analysis of satellite image mosaics using artificial intelligence. The history time series of satellite images analyzes the time when the vegetation index has been the highest during the growing season and analyzes the probability of the urgency of forest management work, says the CEO Joni Norppa Terramonitorita.

The now-released Wuudis service serves as a service company's forest resource, monitoring and operations system, or complements existing systems by providing a real-time, easy-to-use and service-independent way to find early harvest and seedling management sites and manage all forest work and self-monitoring with new map levels and mobile services. In practice, Wuudis now offers digital tools that make it easy to communicate with forest owners and decide to commission urgent forest management work in a timely manner, making costs more predictable.
