Are you familiar with EFISCEN?


The European Forest Information Scenario model (EFISCEN) is a large-scale forest scenario model that assesses the availability of wood and projects forest resource development on regional to European scale. The model is mostly used to evaluate and compare different policy and forest management scenarios. The model and its source code are freely available.

The model uses national forest inventory data as a main source of input to describe the current structure and composition of European forest resources. Based on this information, the model can project the development of forest resources, based on different scenarios. These scenarios are mainly determined by management actions, but the model can also take into account changes in forest area, as well as changes in growth e.g. due to climate change.
