EU-Forest

The EU-Forest dataset is the result of a joint effort between the JRC and the National Forest Inventories, aiming at producing a harmonised dataset that integrates and extends by almost one order of magnitude the publicly available information on European tree species distribution.

EU-Forest is an extremely valuable resource for several disciplines, including biodiversity conservation, palaeoecology, plant ecology, bioeconomy, and pest management.

The EU-Forest dataset includes more than half a million tree occurrences distributed over nearly 250,000 forest plots across most of the European territory.
