Incredible RFID for Forest Inventory

So we have this tree farm up in Sual, Pangasinan, Philippines. We would like to be able to inventory our more mature trees. We would love to know that each tree is alive and also be able to connect the data back to our database.

I’m thinking of using RFID technology for this. There are now RFIDs in nail form factor. Given a serial number (in our case an RFID #), we should be able to lookup the specific tree and read the RFID /serial number and then match it to our database:

  1. GPS location
  2. Species name
