ePlant’s veteran engineers and scientists have a passion for unlocking insights by developing state-of-the-art sensing platforms. They founded ePlant to revolutionize the way plant data are collected, understood, and applied at scale. The ePlant TreeTag system is the first realization of that vision.
ePlant TreeTags not only monitors plants, they turn them into environmental sensors. Real-time data are fed to the cloud where it is organized, stored, and analyzed. These data support applications in agriculture, arboriculture, forestry, government, risk management, and consumer spaces.
