Luke’s Motti software predicts the future development of forests


What impact does silviculture have on the development of trees, the profitability of forestry and the volume of carbon sequestered by forests. The Motti software of the Natural Resources Institute Finland provides recommendations based on scientific research regarding, for example, whether remedial ditching is profitable in peatlands and what the consequences of delayed thinning are.
