In May 2000 Sotico Pty Ltd contracted Interpine Forestry to complete a MARVL inventory audit in southwest Western Australia across approximately 3,500 hectares (8,645 acres) of Eucalyptus globulus plantations. Six 2-man cruising teams set a highly efficient standard by completing 1,300 plots within 2 weeks.
The primary goals were to confirm and benchmark volume, area, and growth projections. A detailed consultancy report was completed on the inventory practice. The systems used by Interpine Forestry performed well and are now well established throughout parts of Australia.
