Abstract: This article summarises recent developments in remote sensing technologies that will have, or are already having, a substantial impact on forest management practices. These technologies have the potential to usher in a new era for the forestry sector with the advent of precision forestry. In this article we review forest measurement through laser scanning, satellite imagery for forest management and developments in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles.
