Precision Forestry

High-tech tools and solutions for a better knowledge of the territory and forest resources. Technology transfer from scientific research to optimized planning for sustainable forest management.

Implementation of software systems based on GIS applications for decision support in forest planning and management processes. Developed with innovative models and algorithms realized with remote sensing techniques..

Detailed mapping of land features by means of photogrammetry and laser scanning by drone (LiDAR), for the production of digital terrain and surface models (DTM and DSM). Processing of complex point clouds.

Preliminary analysis of environmental components is necessary for the proper insertion of infrastructure into the territory, to design the necessary mitigation and to minimize any damage. We meet these needs by carrying out rehabilitation and redevelopment projects of degraded areas such as quarries, landfills and areas , Environmental Impact Assessments and Impact Assessments.

Collecting data is easy, collecting good quality data is less so. But how do you assess whether the data is actually of good quality? Our experience provides the answers to this question through specific operational procedures.

Urban Green And
Environmental Monitoring

Assessment of stability and physiological status of trees with innovative techniques that allows monitoring of plant functionality for the expression of ecosystem services and tree risk management.

In the modern management of urban green areas, the monitoring of the phytosanitary conditions of trees and the identification of those at risk of falling is fundamental. The V.T.A. method (Visual Tree Assessment) method allows the identification of these specimens starting from the characteristic symptoms that they show. Through specific visual and instrumental analysis we provide quantitative data on the condition of the wood.

Thanks to the new technologies and products available, we are able to plan effective intervention strategies to permanently eliminate some pathogens and parasites that often attack the tree species commonly used in urban trees or carry out treatments to reinvigorate plants in nutritional deficit. To perform the treatments we use the collaboration of professionals in the field.

Is it possible to know the risk of air pollution in remote areas without expensive investments? Is it possible to move from the data collected by pollution measurement stations to wider spatial estimates? Spontaneous or introduced vegetation is a simple and inexpensive method for monitoring environmental quality and air pollution in urban and remote areas.

How are the forests doing? Are they threatened by pest attacks, air pollution? Has their condition changed over time? Does their management meet sustainability criteria? We can answer this question, applying harmonized methodologies at the community level and providing the necessary data for certification processes.

Assessment of the physiological state of trees using vegetation indices (NDVI), processed from drone photogrammetric surveys (UAV SAPR) with multispectral sensors. Stability analysis with specially developed IoT sensors, with real-time software analysis and alert system.

Environmental Planning

Development of support systems for integrated planning of environmental resources, using remote sensing techniques (satellites and drones).

For the valorization of the territory we offer services of planning and management of systems of fruition of the environmental resources (Guidelines for the management of the Risorse), realizzazione di reti escursionistiche, percorsi natura e didattici e di materiale promozionale e divulgativo.

Activities performed as an ENAC licensed operator, with the support of professional pilots.

Participation in groups for the drafting of EIAs/EIAs according to the procedures indicated by current regulations. Drafting of Impact Assessments for interventions affecting areas with environmental constraints (Parks, Protected Areas, Sites of Community Interest etc.)

Collecting data is easy, collecting good quality data is less so. But how do you assess whether the data is actually of good quality? Our experience provides the answers to this question through specific operational procedures.

ricerca e sviluppo

Research and Development

Quality data collection, testing and development of new technological solutions for the forestry and environmental sector.

Design and development of Nature Based solutions for tree heritage monitoring.

Design, development and testing of applications for agricultural and forestry monitoring activities and positive environmental impact projects.


Design and Redevelopment

Technical design of parks, green areas, and natural resource prevention and conservation interventions.

The green is something more than a simple decoration. We provide technical assistance for design, management, restoration, pruning, consolidation, phytosanitary treatments and green systems with special purposes.

The preliminary analysis of the environmental components is necessary for a correct insertion of the infrastructures in the territory and for the planning of the mitigation measures necessary to minimize damage. We respond to these needs by carrying out projects of recovery and redevelopment of degraded areas such as quarries, landfills and marginal areas, Environmental Impact Assessments and Impact Assessments.

Design of consolidation, stabilization and protection works for escarpments and slopes using naturalistic engineering techniques, carried out with the collaboration of AIPIN members, in order to prevent and recover landslide and hydrogeological instability phenomena.
