Operational immersive visualisation and measurement of dense point cloud data in forest inventory

This project aims to provide Australian commercial forest growers and forest service providers with knowledge of and access to a virtual reality (VR)-based visualisation software application. This will enable 3D immersive remote assessments of individual trees using dense point cloud data. The project will integrate automated individual tree profiles using Machine Learning (ML) techniques into the VR environment. The aim being that forestry field operators can successfully undertake tree stem assessments using forest point clouds data in an immersive VR environment.

Innovative nursery management solutions to sustainably manage root disease, improve nursery utilization, and enhance resilience and productivity of planted pines

Root-borne diseases are increasingly affecting tree production nurseries, lowering productivity and profitability. This project will improve nursery management by defining the right balance of fertilizer, fungicide and microbial inoculum to break the disease cycle, and use field trials to refine treatments to improve establishment and resilience post-planting.

Sustained productivity gains in softwood plantations through enablement of single-step genomic selection

This project forms part of a series that aims to at least double the rate of genetic gain in pine tree breeding in Australia. This project will focus on the extensive network of trials and orchards in the Gippsland region of Victoria to further implement cutting-edge single-step genomic selection, provide pedigree and identity assurance for the radiata pine breeding and deployment populations, and deliver new, high-throughput sample processing methods.
