Where LiDAR Meets Forest Science
At the core of ArborMeta is LiDAR-based measurement. We're innovating the systems, software and technology necessary to bring the benefits of high accuracy laser measurement to the world of forest science.
What Is It To Know A Tree?
What if you knew a tree’s exact location, its diameter and height; its canopy cover, growing surface and leaf area. What if you knew every twist and turn of its branches, its volume and carbon stock — and that of all its neighbours?
These metrics are now available with greater precision and auditability than ever before.
At ArborMeta, we know trees. Our vision is to help you know your trees too.

Our Technology Extracts Key Metrics From Every Tree
We're building a database of the world's forests
Using Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), we're compiling a database of the world's forests, with real world measures of sequestration rates, mature forest carbon stocks and landscape averages.

Our Progress in Numbers
In order to bring the many advantages of high-precision forest measurement technology to the areas that need it, ArborMeta has worked to more than double the official carbon inventory for the continent of Australia in under two years — and this is just the beginning.
With the world's largest database of ultra-high precision terrestrial LiDAR surveys, we have the data needed to model, monitor and verify carbon and conservation efforts around the globe.
