*******www.gwm-tv**** - Wireless tracking technology is currently being introduced across Brazil as part of continued efforts to clamp down on the illegal timber trade.
The Radio Frequency Identification - or RFID - tags contain implanted antennae and can either be attached to standing trees or to logs. Each tagged tree is given an identification number, which is uploaded to a database that is shared between logging companies and timber control authorities.
Information contained in the system will include species, coordinates of harvest, current location, planting year and logging permit and will also help with the development of sustainable forest management.
