Have you ever heard the sorry tale of the statistician who drowned while crossing a river that was, on average, only three feet deep? A mathematical fact with enormous practical consequences.
This funny anecdote is applicable in many industries where the law of averages is used as a means for making key decisions.

Treemetrics Win ESA Contract for Pioneering ‘Digital Health Check for Tree’s’ –
Treemetrics, the Digital Analytics Platform for World Forestry’, has today announced a major €1.2 million contract agreement, with the European Space Agency, to roll out a pioneering Tree Growth analytics and monitoring system, which includes a unique measurement sensor that tracks the growth and health of trees. The ‘Tree sensor’ has been designed to monitor ‘minute’ increases in growth of the tree. The ground-breaking solution creates a mesh network which effectively creates a ‘digital forest’ and the resultant data is transmitted via a Satellite Communications platform, providing real time analytics for forest managers.
This week, Forestry companies from across the world will come together in Sweden, to enjoy a showcase of technology and equipment designed to enable the forestry industry to work better and smarter.
Foresters are in a data-based business, but don’t have sufficient levels of data to make data-based decisions
Having worked in over 35 countries around the world over the past 12 years, we have seen first hand the difficulties foresters encounter when attempting to make key management decisions, such as; what species to plant, when to clearfell and what log products to cut.
Coillte, Ireland’s national forestry company, today announced a major €1 million contract agreement, with Cork-headquartered Treemetrics, to roll out a pioneering real-time satellite communications and data-analytics platform for Forestry harvest control, which is designed to optimise operational efficiency, reduce waste and improve environmental sustainability.
