Our CEO and Co-founder, Carsten Brinkschulte, recently featured on Terraformation's 'Who Will Speak for the Trees?' series.

Additionally, it suggests that such a network could enable a range of applications, like monitoring forest health and detecting illegal logging, transforming forest management and protection.
