Canada is required to prepare an annual report on the state of its forests to meet its international commitments and national requirements. To this end, the Canadian Forest Service co-ordinates the National Forest Inventory (NFI), which is based on a network of permanent sample plots covering all of Canada’s forests. Repeated sampling of the plots through aerial photographs and ground measurements provides standardized information on forest attributes.
