iFOS Forestry Solutions
We develop tailored solutions in the field of forestry – technically profound, sophisticated and future oriented
The forestry industry is facing dramatic changes due to climate change and a very tense economic situation. That is why there is currently considerable momentum toward new technologies. Currently, many individual solutions are being developed all over the sector, in which isolated added values are generated, but from which no whole picture emerges.
Prof. Dr. Martin Ziesak identified a concrete need for action to create holistic solutions that, function independently of manufacturers, connect existing technologies and map the vision of smart processes with smart machines. Therefore, iFOS GmbH was founded by Martin Ziesak in 2018.
iFOS is an internationally operating industry-related research, engineering and advisory company in the field of forestry. Moreover, iFOS supports its clients with services in the field of forest sciences. iFOS is contributing to projects that make a difference.
In the context of industry 4.0, we connect machines manufacturer-independently. This creates value by automation of your work processes, as well as from insights through advancing data analysis.

iFOS is significantly contributing to the following publicly funded projects:
Development, prototypical implementation, and practical testing of a “Forest Data Space”. The platform will enable cross-value chain monitoring of CO2 balances. The seamless integration of machinery enabled by our iFOS middleware system across the timber harvesting process is key to ensuring accurate precise carbon tracking. Further objectives are optimized truck routes and reduced emotional stress for forest workers.
We are excited to announce our participation in the research project "CO2For-IT". This initiative is dedicated to the development, prototypical implementation, and practical testing of a "Forest...
