Forests can be difficult to navigate on foot, the terrain is uneven, difficult to access and can be dangerous and, in the event of a forest fire or other disaster, downright dangerous and therefore even more dangerous to survey and collect data on the ground.
Drones provide a much safer way to collect data from the air, carry out surveillance missions and conduct search and rescue operations in forests and wooded areas.
Because drones are easier to pilot, they can be deployed very quickly and pre-programmed autonomous missions can be carried out more regularly without putting forestry workers at risk.
Drones offer greater flexibility when it comes to planning activities, as well as the ability to move freely around an area. This makes them easier to use than traditional vehicles for the day-to-day management of forest resources.
Decreased fuel consumption
Another benefit of using drones is their low fuel consumption, this not only helps in the fight against climate change, but also reduces the need for small, manned aircraft, which are very expensive to operate and use a lot of aviation fuel.
