The Development of European Forest Resources, 1950 to 2000

This study deals with the challenge of adjusting inconsistencies in the historical data series over time for the main forest resources parameters based on the UNECE/FAO Forest Resources Assessments (FRA) source data. It describes the methods used to improve the quality of long-term series based on national inventory data and assesses trends for a number of European countries. It attempts to identify driving forces behind major long-term changes in key forest resource parameters.
