Besides, the latest trend is that of GPS control system being integrated with forestry equipment, so that real-time tracking could be incorporated with propagation of sustainable operations. Also, the fact that wood pellets are being increasingly being asked for to serve as feedstock for the power plants in developed economies can’t be ignored. With preservation of forests being looked upon as a matter of serious concern, the countries in the Asia-Pacific like India and China are seen making relentless efforts. The governments are also pitching in.
