CreatorBundesforschungsanstalt für Forst- und Holzwirtschaft (BFH)
DescriptionThe National Forest Inventory - NFI (Bundeswaldinventur; BWI) is a large-scale survey of forest status and forest production potential conducted using a uniform procedure for the entire territory of the Federal Republic of Germany. The website provides information about the inventory results of the second survey from 2001 to 2002 and the first survey from 1986 to 1989 as well as about the aims and methods of the inventory. It also contains the results of the Projection modelling of forest development and timber harvesting potential, an assessment of the potential roundwood availability and related potential forest development over the next 40 years based on the NFI results and assumed forest management activities. The NFI is a joint project of the Federal Government and the Länder. The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) has assigned the national inventory administration to the Federal Research Centre for Forestry and Forest Products. The site is available in German and English, but not all functions of the German website are available in the English version.
