STICKS Harvester Woodflow Management

managing wood-flow and customer demand the smart way

Forest Harvesting machines for many years have been able to collect accurate and detailed data on the stems being processed and the logs being cut by an operator down to individual log dimensions and felling location. This data is controlled by the defacto Standard for Forest machine Data and Communication – StanForD.
