State forests are usually on the seller’s side and, therefore, it is important for them to have a good overview of the volume and assortment of the products they’re selling.
How hard can log detection be?Speaking of Timbeter and log detection, I am often asked questions like: "How hard can it be? Can't you just find circles in the image?"
Since the beginning, Timbeter’s goal has been to make the foresters and timber-related people work smarter, more efficient and digital. Our work has included working with different educational institutions and universities to educate and train the future foresters about the new technologies. Why not research Timbeter at your university or educational institution?
Manufacturers produce log poles for power and communication lines. A 60-foot (18 m) pole would typically cost between $1,700 to $3,000. Naturally, manufacturers want to maximize their capital dollars, so counting and measuring wood poles correctly is extremely important. Losing even one single pole can cause significant losses to revenue.
Timbeter has released a significant new feature that measures single high-value logs (SHVL) that have been torn down and need to be measured individually.
In addition to diameters, now Timbeter detects QR Codes - Perfect solution for those exporting logs in containers!
Timbeter has released the new feature that besides detecting the log diameters and calculating the piece count and the volume, also reads the information from QR codes. In just couple of minutes the QR code detection enables companies to easily and quickly detect the diameters of logs and obtain the information stored within QR codes attached to them. Meaning that, when earlier, companies had to measure the diameters manually and use the barcode reader to detect the information from the tags or codes, now everything can be completed with one photo picture.
All the data is in digital form and can be easily shared or used for further processing.
Daily, the team receive several questions regarding the use of different formulae for measuring Roundwood and timber from all over the world.

At Timbeter, by bringing solutions and making measurements easier and more precise, we will make the industry more sustainable and profitable for all. Inevitably, we understand that the world is changing - that’s why we need to make it better for everyone.
Firstly, a big thank you to all our clients, cooperation partners, friends, and supporters; who’ve made this year a great one!
Often I ask companies how do they measure their timber, they reply: “We scale.” I know the question asked is somewhat loaded, but considering the vast differences in measuring this way - I’ve written 5 reasons why you shouldn't measure timber via weight.
Scaling is typically used to measure low variability or low value sales timber. From a positive side using weight is one of the easiest methods because the majority understand what a ton is. However, the simplest method is not always the best option.
Confused over which formula to use? How to measure timber accurately? Or about using Timbeter? We are here to help! Everyday at Timbeter, the team receive a lot of different questions from users, clients and the general public. To improve customer satisfaction, I’ve compiled several questions from our potential Timbeter users, which will help and make measurements a breeze!
Changing your daily processes and learning to adapt to new technologies always require some effort and attention. Sometimes these changes often demand too much, so it’s logical to ask – is it worth it?
From user requests we are finally thrilled to announce that Timbeter is now available for iOS users. You can download the app to your iPhone or iPad here.
For the second year in a row, Timbeter was asked to participate at the Timber Measurement Society meeting to learn and discuss the latest trends in timber measurement.
The team at Timbeter have been catching up with several market leaders within the timber industry who have switched to using Timbeter to measure logs and timber. CEO Vallo Visnapuu spoke to Kuldar Kollom from Dammix about how Timbeter has benefitted their business.
There are a variety of log scaling methods around the world. However, there is a vast variability between each region, making transparent communication difficult. Describing each method and its parameters are vital for enabling clear and transparent measurement between all partners, and thus eradicating any attempts at fraud.
