Forestry measures

The EU forest monitoring and protection measures

The EU Forestry Strategy calls on the Commission to undertake a review of the measures in Council Regulation (EEC) No 3528/86 on the protection of forests against atmospheric pollution in order to evaluate and improve continuously the effectiveness of the European monitoring system of forest health, taking into account all the potential impacts on forest ecosystems (Article 5). Also the continuation and evaluation of, and consideration of a possible improvement to the Community's scheme for the protection of the forests against fire (Council Regulation (EEC) No 2158/92) is advocated (Article 6). The Strategy invites the Commission to pay special attention to the development of the Community forest-fire information system (Article 6).

With a budget of EUR 2.14 billion (for the period 2007-2013), LIFE+ provides support for the development and implementation of a wide range of EU environmental policies and corresponding legislation. This also covers forest-related projects, so development of forest monitoring and forest protection can be supported by LIFE+.
