Pike Forestry Consultants has developed a complete F.I.S (Forest Information
System), in which we have been working uninterruptly since the year 2002.
We likewise have a complete Forestry Data Base, which allows us to analyze
the current and project the future availability of timber, both in Uruguay
and in Argentina. The F.I.S contains two main elements
A complete GIS (Geographical Information Systems) which contains detailed
information about each plantation in Uruguay, describing for each planted
cadastral unit the following issues: owner, species, year of plantation,
forest management, distance to the most important points such as ports
and industries. At the same time, the GIS provides information about the
existing natural resources at different levels: cadastral units and farm
level (soil type, contour maps, geological maps, hydrological maps including
rivers and streams). In addition information about the internal routes,
departmental routes, railway lines, distance to ports and the corresponding
distances to villages and cities is provided.

with complementary information such as: harvesting year, estimated timber
