The Maine Forest Ecosystem Status and Trends (ForEST) App, an interactive forest resource mapping application designed to support management planning and mitigation of spruce budworm impact, is now live and can be accessed here!
ForEST provides decision support to private and public forest managers, natural resource agencies, conservation organizations, and other stakeholders. ForEST makes it easy to visualize, explore, and interpret map data relevant to SBW mitigation and land use planning.
The ForEST App allows users to:
- View state-of-the-art maps of forest conditions derived from satellite imagery
- Explore regional budworm population monitoring data
- Evaluate forest risk in areas of interest
- Identify natural resource tradeoffs
- Download GeoPDFs
