Information gained via aerial remote sensing technologies contributes to the planning and management practices of either public or private forests and the assessment of health conditions of trees. Climate change may affect the composition of forests, which can have negative effects on endangered plant and animal species and on artificial and natural habitats. Aerial imagery give the basis to determine several tree species, to identify invasive species, to map areas of encroachment, to determine the heath state of a given area, to explore damages, to map endangered tree species, to determine the relief characteristics of the examined area (slope, aspect, elevation above sea level) and to analyse soil conditions. The collected new data contributes to more effective forest planning and management with forests as natural resources.
