UPM Tilhill wins survey contract

UPM Tilhill has won a contract to survey over 28,000 trees lining the streets and parks of Edinburgh.

The 23-week contract will result in a fully mapped, bespoke database with detailed on- location reports, species and the health and condition of the city's street and parkland trees. Surveys are carried out using handheld computers that use software to plot the exact location of trees on a GIS map to ensure efficient data capture and analyses. UPM Tilhill district manager Steve Farnworth said: "We have broken new ground here, working closely with the client to fine-tune objectives and target information."
