Taking Forest Management to the Future: ICT Forestry Pioneer - Hiroyuki Nakamura *RERUN
Over 40% of Japan is covered with woodland. But in recent years, cheap foreign imports have seen a decline in Japan's timber industry, with the resulting lack of resources and personnel required for forest management also leading to landslides and other issues. Hiroyuki Nakamura is revolutionizing forestry through ICT, using laser scanners and 3D modeling to identify the most suitable timber and project the growth of younger saplings after thinning. We follow a pioneer of future forestry.
