I tell all my forestry colleagues and friends to use Forest Metrix. I have been using Forest Metrix for over a year now. It is with out a doubt the most useful forestry tool I own, my business would not survive without it. I love everything about the software; it is intuitive, and so easy to use. What a great feeling to spend a day in the woods timber cruising, then when you are done all you have to do is hit the “Calculate” button and within a short time Forest Metrix has all of the timber species, volumes, and forest products sorted and calculated. I never go to the woods without my IPad and Forest Metrix; it has made timber appraisal work fun again! Specifically speaking, the product support has been the best I have ever witnessed. Not only do I recommend Forest Metrix to anyone needing a quality timber cruising software, I will be using Forest Metrix until I can’t work in the woods anymore.

Absolutely, positively, the biggest bang for your money. I was tired of buying overpriced dedicated field data collectors, so I took a serious look at Forest Metrix in 2014. The iPad application is extremely powerful and the staff delivered my customizations as promised. The iPad used for running the application is relatively inexpensive and supports numerous forestry or work-related applications, making my time in the field more efficient. Best of all, I did not have to sink money into one more over-priced field data collector.

For years we have been looking for a well designed, reasonably priced, user friendly forest inventory program to use in the consulting forestry side of our business and we finally found it – Forest Metrix. We have tried many others and even designed one ourselves but Forest Metrix beats them all hands down. We like the fact that it can be customized and run in the field on an iPad mini – a low priced tablet that allows for great use with the attractive interface from the program. We recommend this program to anyone looking to find the best inventory software available.

I would like to take a minute and thank Forest Metrix for being a great group of people with a great product. Having been a consulting forester for over 30 years, I have been slow to “upgrade” to modern technology. I have looked at different systems, some quite expensive for the full package, that did not really report cruise work like I wanted. Finally, Forest Metrix developed a product that is easy to use, very affordable and runs on a computer that can be used for other functions. My cruise data is easily uploaded to my computer, via emailing a file, and the reporting software that quickly produces a report that is easy to understand. I had some questions early on but they were always answered promptly and quickly got me to the finish line with my work. Thank you Forest Metrix!!
