A forest tech company, with locations worldwide, Timbeter’s aim is to eradicate illegal logging and improve timber supply for both log buyers and sellers using a pioneering algorithm.
In 2013, Vallo Visnapuu received a phone call from the organizers of a local technology hackathon event called Garage48.
The event organizers asked him to present a problem that he faced in his sawmill, and how utilizing new technology could solve the problem.
Visnapuu had an idea if smartphones could recognize human faces, could they not recognize logs from a photo? Visnapuu met fellow technology and forestry enthusiasts Anna-Greta Tsahkna and Martin Kambla at the event, and together they launched a prototype that won the competition.
At Timbeter, we are on a mission to revolutionize the way the forestry industry measures timber. Our goal is to provide digital solutions that are more efficient, accurate, and sustainable than traditional methods.
We believe that technology can make a positive impact on the forestry industry by reducing waste, improving operations, and enabling companies to make better decisions. By digitizing the measurement process, we eliminate the need for physical measurement, which can be time-consuming, costly, and prone to errors.
