The Swedish National Forest Inventory has the task of describing the state and changes in Sweden's forests. The information collected is used, for example, as a basis for forestry, energy and environmental policy in Sweden.

At the heart of the Swedish National Forest Inventory is the annual inventory which is undertaken by ca 50 field workers during the snow free period. Every year an inventory is carried out on ca 12 000 sample plots with measurements collected from ca 95 000 trees and large range of other variables describing the stand, site and history of the sample plot.

After the field data has been collected they are subjected to comprehesive quality controls and secondary variables are calculated before the data is stored and ready for final analysis and publication.
