FOREST METRIX

The highest rated forestry software

Forest Metrix sprang from the woods of central Vermont. Donn Downey, a consulting forester and Tig Tillinghast, sixth in a line of forestry-related professionals, introduced comprehensive industry software into the modern generation of mobile computing hardware.

Over the years, the program developed to include many features. Refinements have given Forest Metrix the easiest interface, the most customizable features, and the fastest data entry of any mobile forestry software. And the analysis and desktop reporting features are second to none.

Forest Metrix is now deployed with state agencies, some of the largest TIMOs and forest and arboriculture service companies, log buyers, and countless consulting foresters, arborists and ecological professionals.
