"The interest in investment in forests and forest products industries in Brazil and the rest of Latin America is growing. A persistent obstacle to securing these investments is the lack of data quantifying forest resources. To support their decisions, investors require assurances that markets for timber will exist when timber is ready to harvest or that timber supply is robust enough to support ongoing operations once a manufacturing facility is built. By using proprietary change detection algorithms and satellite imagery to develop age class profiles of forests, Forest2Market do Brasil continues to support the development of the forest products industry. Timber Supply Analysis 360 brings transparency and visibility to Brazil's forest resources and gives the industry data it can rely on to make multimillion-dollar decisions with confidence."
--Marcelo Schmid, Director of Forest2Market do Brasil
Operators and investors in Brazil’s forests and forest products industries require visibility into the fiber supply.
In order to forecast timber supply and price in the United States, Forest2Market developed a long-term forest level resource planning tools based on:
Forest2Market do Brasil has replicated these datasets for Brazil with the introduction of Timber Supply Analysis 360.
The result is a highly precise and accurate forecast of forest inventory, supply/ demand and prices.
