The development of statistical inventory methods started at the beginning of the twentieth century, when the first regional and national forest inventories were performed in Finland and Norway.   Information on forest resources is also needed at wider continental scales, in view of the different international reporting processes that aim at orienting forest policies (FAO ; FOREST EUROPE , Keenan et al. ).Here, the European space faces the basic reality and major difficulty that the NFIs have developed on national bases, with their own purposes Cited by: 2. Geographical levels of forest inventory Forest inventories at local level: Forest information is required on different geographical levels.

Book Description. Sound forest management planning requires cost-efficient approaches to optimally utilize given resources. Emphasizing the mathematical and statistical features of forest sampling to assess classical dendrometrical quantities, Sampling Techniques for Forest Inventories presents the statistical concepts and tools needed to conduct a modern forest .   The increment estimation methods of European NFIs were explored by means of 12 essential NFI features. The results indicate various differences among NFIs within the commonly acknowledged methodological frame. The perspectives for harmonisation at the European level are promising. The estimation of increment is implemented differently in Cited by: Forest inventory is the systematic collection of data and forest information for assessment or analysis. An estimate of the value and possible uses of timber is an important part of the broader information required to sustain ecosystems. When taking forest inventory the following are important things to measure and note: species, diameter at breast height (DBH), height, site . The overall objectives of ENFIN are to • provide a platform for the harmonisation of forest inventory information at European scale • optimise synergies between NFIs and promote new knowledge and enhanced methods • support forest policies with harmonised forest information and adapt data collection to new emerging policy needs.
