A lot of land management requires review and analysis of data. We can help.
A couple of the data analysis-focused projects we’ve completed are outlined below:
Patch Distribution and Seral Stage Analyses
As part of Forest Ecosystem Management, we want to ensure that forests are distributed across the landscape in a range of ages (seral stages) and of sizes (patches). Westland Resources has created algorithms and carried out analyses that allow government agencies and forest tenure holders to evaluate existing distributions and compare them with government targets.
Delivered Log Cost Analyses
In support of efforts to attract new forest industry to BC’s Pacific Northwest, Westland Resources was engaged in 2009 to provide an analysis of the Delivered Log Costs for the Kalum Forest District. This product has proven very helpful, and in 2010, we were asked to produce a similar product for a client in the Kispiox Timber Supply Area, and to update the 2009 report for delivery of logs to Kitimat.
