Through continuous development and constant adaptation to new hardware, it has evolved into a powerful and precise measurement method that is becoming increasingly important in the state, private and communal forest sector.
» For several years HessenForst has worked successfully and efficiently together with Heidegesellschaft as service provider of photo measurement. Based on photo measurement it has become possible to generate a standardised control measure for the entire operation. The time savings compared to the normal measurement, the cost reductions that are thereby achieved and the documentation of quality and quantity, are just a few of the advantages of this measurement method. «

Precise wood measurement in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania
In 2022, the state forest in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania received 40 measuring devices from HD LogSystems and had around 200 employees trained by us in the system. With their new devices, the state forest measures both the cubic metres of industrial wood and the number of LAS wood stacks (long wood sections). The measurement of cubic metres with LogStackPRO is accepted by the customers of the Landesforst Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as a sales volume. The number of pieces is used as a control measurement compared to the measurement of the sawmill.
In Tarnow, Schlemmin, Hannes Weidermann has been district manager for two months. During this time he calculated the number of pieces and cubic metres with the photo measurement from LogStackPRO.
Torsten Doer is district manager in Rosenow, Schlemmin. In the first three months that the state forester worked with LogStackPRO, he measured around 6,000 cubic metres of industrial and “LAS” piles and compared these LogStackPRO quantities with the harvester logs:
» The LAS piece counts were almost always the same, and the discrepancies in pulp quantities were minor and mostly due to technical reasons. «
He also explains that the back of the wood pile is sometimes difficult to measure, but this will be possible almost everywhere thanks to ongoing optimisation of the pile.
» All dimensions were accepted by the wood buyers – no quantity corrections were made, « Torsten Doer emphasises finally.
Contact us or book a demonstration for additional information about the advantages of using LogStackPRO or LogStackLIDAR for measurements in your business. If relevant, we will be pleased to arrange a visit and to demonstrate test measurements. This will of course be free of charge and non-binding.
