Remsoft has assisted Forestry Corporation with the bushfire recovery process, providing optimization modelling technology to efficiently schedule crews to harvest the burnt timber.
Forestry Corporation of NSW, a state-owned business responsible for the management of state forests within New South Wales, Australia, has reached an important recovery milestone following the country’s 2019-20 bushfire season. More than 3 million tons of fire-affected timber has been harvested, hauled and sold from the organisation’s bushfire-affected softwood plantations at Bathurst, Bombala, Grafton, Tumut and Walcha.
The milestone represents around 71,000 truckloads of logs and is a significant boost for communities recovering from the devastating bushfire season. Forestry Corporation is working with local harvesting and haulage contractors and mills to help ensure timber is available for the NSW community to rebuild after the fires.
