The technologies, when combined, will create an end-to-end solution to manage forest assets anywhere in the world, creating sustainable forest management solutions.

There have been increasing efforts from various sides to control carbon emissions. Yet, poor forest management, deforestation, encroachments and illegal logging are obstructing the world's climate goals, putting all climate efforts in vain.

Treevia's expertise in technology will automate the collection, processing, and visualization of data from forest assets to increase forest productivity and enhance sustainability. Using Wyld Network's high precision IoT sensors, Treevia monitors variables in forest environments by automating data collection.

The satellite IoT solutions will help Treevia collect data affordably and efficiently from IoT sensors in remote locations at low power.

“Wyld’s satellite IoT solution will deliver efficiency and scalability as we look to extend our technology to the mass monitoring of tree assets across the globe,” said Maycow Berbert, CTO of Treevia, based in Brazil. “At present, Treevia monitors over 100,000 hectares of forests and we plan to monitor 1 billion hectares of forests by 2030, one-quarter of the world’s total forest area.”

“Collecting data is vital to improving the commercial and sustainable management of global forestry assets,” said Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks. “We are delighted to be working with Treevia to solve these data capture challenges with Wyld’s sensor-to-satellite technology and look forward to deploying our solutions globally to support such an important sustainability initiative."
