Why does barcoding trees help the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Adding barcodes to trees helps fight illegal logging, corruption and global warming. One British company barcodes trees to help firms comply with tough laws on importing sustainable timber into the United States and Europe. Compared to paper records, this computerized system is less prone to fraud, carries live data, and can help governments to collect more timber taxes. Companies and government officials can track individual trees and view computerized maps of forests on the database. Any timber leaving a forest or factory without a tag is viewed as illegal.
