National Forest Inventories


The measurement of the amount and characteristics of forest resources is called forest inventory or forest resource assessment. National Forest Inventory (NFI) provides information about forest resources of a certain country, where NFI data supports policy and trade decisions (e.g. investments), science initiatives and responses to regional, national and international inquiries.

The forest inventory methods vary from country to country, but in all cases remote sensing materials (including aerial photos or satellite images) and field sampling measurements are applied. Also the interval of successive national forest inventories varies. The inventories give results about the volume of growing stock by tree species, increment, health of forests, and in some cases about other non-timber variables, like berries and game populations.
