MySustainableForest provides Earth Observation (EO) geo-information products across
the wood sector to support the production chain from sustainable forest management
procedures to wood quality entering sawmills, pulp mills or other wood transforming
MySustainableForest leverages Copernicus Data and Information Access Services
(DIAS), namely Sentinel data, and heterogeneous local data sets provided by users. The
data is transformed into modular processing components such as LIDAR models, satellite
models, wood quality models and socio-economic models that are accessed through a
user-friendly web platform.
EO products support forest users’ decision-making relative to site and wood characterisation,
biomass and CO2 stocking, forest health, vulnerabilities and socioeconomic accounting of
forests and wood resources.Users include forest owners and managers, transport fleets,
sawing mills and quality industries. By providing timely, high quality geo-information about
forests, these products promote the “coherent, holistic view of forest management, cover
the multiple benefits of forests, integrate internal and external forest-policy issues, and
address the whole forest value-chain” - EU Forest Strategy, 2013.
