When rolled-out, the bark beetle monitoring service provides rapid spatial information on current bark beetle infestation on a large-spatial scale. Currently, status updates are generated every 14-days. This data allows forest administration and forest owners to continuously monitor their forest. In case of an infestation detection or warning, foresters can initiate appropriate forest management activities at an early stage and thus prevent a larger bark beetle infestation outbreak. This not only saves money, but preserves the forests' important socio-economic functions.
