If a Tree Falls in a Forest, Does It Make a Sound?

Yes, Satelytics “hears” it!

  • Problem: Monitoring forest health and growth.
  • Solution: Geospatial analytics that produce automated alerts.
  • Benefit: Improved silviculture practices, increased profits, decreased environmental impact.

The question has been posed time and again: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” While we enjoy intelligent conversation at Satelytics, we think the more pressing question is: If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, how do you know to look for it? And further — What consequences could result from it going undetected?

Satelytics tackles the tough questions and makes solutions simple and straightforward for our customers.

With Satelytics, if a tree falls in your forest, creating a potential hazard, our software senses it and alerts you to what has happened. We’ll give you the exact location and details so remediation crews can be properly directed and prepared. They can even take Satelytics out into the field — whether an internet connection is available or not — with Satelytics for the non-connected world recording data and photos.
