Nicholsons drone services enable us to quickly survey significant areas of woodland, offering a variety of purposes from woodland management to analysing tree health

Drone Services

Nicholsons offer drone services. Qualified to fly commercially with a permission for commercial operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority.  We utilise software that allows us to collate large quantities of geo referenced images into an overview of trees and woodlands. We utilise the drone for management purposes, aerial photography and tree health monitoring. The drone enables us to survey significant areas of woodland in a short duration of time.


Our drone is programmed using specialist software to take hundreds of photographs. These images are then stitched together to form large and high resolution orthomaps. These orthomaps can be integrated into your GIS  mapping system and used for analysis, planning and woodland management.
