Resource Inventory - Our Specialty
Timberline specializes in the production of forest resource and wetland inventories and related field services.


Timberline's resource inventory team is available to assist clients with vegetation and forest inventories, wetland inventories, inventory assessments, and inventory audits. 

A spatially accurate and detailed inventory is important to assist with the management of a land base. Resource managers need to know what resources they have, how much they have, where those resources are, and how they are distributed across the landscape.  Timberline provides proven inventory expertise to licencees and government agencies across western Canada.

Forest and vegetation inventories are usually image-based (aerial photographs, airborne digital imagery, satellite imagery) using photo interpretation or image analysis techniques supported by field work.  Timberline has the ability to assist with all phases of production including assessment of current inventories, inventory design, planning, and implementation, image acquisition, field survey design, field data collection, database design, data compilation and analysis, design and production of final products, and third party inventory audits.

Inventory of managed forest land is increasing as clients need detailed information regarding disturbed land bases including harvested areas, burned areas, and other industrial activities such as oil and gas exploration and extraction.  Our aerial regeneration assessment programs provide a timely, extensive and cost effective look at these types of land cover. 
 
We also design and implement new inventory approaches and programs and have contributed to many government or industrial inventory task forces and technical committees.  Integral to all phases of production is our rigorous quality control process to ensure a quality product.
