Forest origin in the UNECE region


Forest origin is an indicator not only of the level of forest naturalness but also the intensity of management. Assessing forest origin is challenging. Over time, planted forests may display features that would normally be found in 'naturally regenerating' ones.

Data Source: FAO Global Forest Resources Assessment Database


Forests can be predominantly composed of trees established through natural regeneration (Naturally regenerating) or of trees established through planting and/or deliberate seeding (Planted). Intensively managed planted forests are called Plantation forests.
