International Comparisons - Depletion and growth of forest resources in terms of volume 1950–2013

OECD

Definitions

Felling: Average annual standing volume of all trees, living or dead, measured overbark to a minimum diameter of 0 cm (d.b.h.) that are felled during the given reference period, including the volume of trees or part of trees that are not removed from the forest, other wooded land or other felling site.

Data calculation/treatment

This data should be read in connection with other indicators of the OECD Core Set, in particular with indicators on land use changes and forest quality (species diversity, forest degradation), and be complemented with data on forest management practices and protection measures.

Limitations of the data

In interpreting these data, it should be borne in mind that definitions and estimation methods vary among countries.
