Timber Species Identifier

Use TSI to accurately identify timber species from LiDAR data

The subject is an old growth harvest block with an area of 28.7 ha. The elevation range is from 948m to 1,217m and TSI segmented 10,985 trees. The LiDAR was flown September 2011 and the block was harvested in October 2013.

Above: The block is predominantly western hemlock with secondary species of amabilis fir (balsam), yellow cedar (cypress), and douglas fir

Above: 2,456 trees out of 10,985 total record a volume above 2 cubic meters each. TSI calculates 6,652 trees with a volume over 1 m3.

Above: Each tree is colour-coded per its primary product. In this example, 1,782 trees yielded saw logs as their primary product.
