Why choose Sitowise

Monitor logging and forest damage objectively, quickly, and accurately with the latest satellite data.
Examine the forest CO2 sinks and biodiversity values, and then take them into account in forest planning.
Locate the thinning needs in the forests.
Smartlas enables you to monitor large areas easily and carry out quick responses to damage risks. It also helps you to target costly field visits to the right areas.

Smartlas enables you to take into account the forest CO2 and biodiversity issues in the forest planning process. It can also be used to monitor forest changes precisely and objectively (e.g., cuttings and storm damage) as well as easily identify the management needs and forest damage risks on the map.

Easily monitor forest cuttings and damage even at the country level 

Climate change is causing large problems due to the increased spreading of insects such as the bark beetle, first in Central Europe and nowadays also in Northern Europe. As extreme weather events become more frequent, we are also experiencing more storm and flood damage as well as increasing fire risks due to extremely dry seasons in Southern Europe.

Smartlas provides easy and continuous insight on what is happening in the forests. Our data helps you to immediately identify the problem areas, target field visits precisely to the right areas, and take actions for preventing the spread of damage.

Satellite monitoring reveals not only damaged but also harvested forests. Our satellite-based automatic change detection service can be used for monitoring the legality of logging at the country level. As an example, our customer Finnish Forestry Centre has been using it to monitor illegal logging since 2019, which has enabled an over 40% decrease in forest law violations in Finland.

Forest CO2 and biodiversity values have an increasingly important role

Forest CO2 and biodiversity maps will serve as tools for smarter forest planning. They can also be used for assessing the effects of land use change. By using them, the role of forests in climate change mitigation can be efficiently incorporated to the planning process. Visualization of biodiversity and carbon sinks will help achieve the environmental sustainability goals.

In addition to CO2 and biodiversity maps, we also provide regional summary reports on forest carbon stocks, carbon sinks, and sources as well as the end-use of CO2 in long-term wood products.




We offer the following AI-refined data as maps and summary reports as DaaS (via data interfaces):

  • Monitoring forest cuttings and storm damage
  • Monitoring forest vitality risks
  • Identifying forests with thinning needs
  • Forest CO2 status
  • Forest biodiversity
