National Forest Inventories (NFIs) represent comprehensive, reliable, large-scale monitoring systems. ENFIN serves as a European network to promote NFIs, harmonise forest information and support decision makers in a broad range of forest related policies.

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.



Who we are

ENFIN is currently a network of more than      30 different institutions from 29 European Countries.

National representatives to the network are leaders of the NFIs or have direct access to NFI information.

What we have done so far

Demands on European forests are manifold. The ENFIN network supports the provision of EU wide harmonised forest information by developing commonly accepted reference definitions and establishing solutions and methods to bridge gaps between national and reference definitions.
