With more than 50 years of experience, the firm offers comprehensive, customized forest management solutions tailored to the specific needs of their clients. Remsoft technology enables F&W to optimize land bases across multiple landscapes, keeping the organization on the cutting edge of forestry management. Supporting every aspect of timberland ownership, F&W relies on Remsoft’s Woodstock optimization modeling platform to run optimization across ownerships in the United States, Brazil, Uruguay and other areas of the world.
Providing landowners around the globe with a comprehensive approach to current and future planning, F&W offers solutions for land valuation and appraisals to support acquisition and disposition analysis. Prior to implementing Remsoft technology, F&W analyzed each individual property which required detailed work and significant time investments.
F&W is now able to optimize for harvest restrictions and cash flow constraints on multiple properties at one time under a similar model on a fully integrated spatial forestry planning and optimization technology framework. Using Remsoft’s Woodstock platform, F&W can optimize 15 properties in the same amount of time that it previously took them to optimize one property.
Moreover, the organization can optimize with considerations for certification to guide clients through the complex third-party verification process and on-going management for programs such as the American Tree Farm System (ATF®), the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI®).
“Using Remsoft we’ve been able to increase our productivity and our efficiencies so that we’re able to provide quicker information to our client.”
