Forest area by forest function

The forest area refers to all areas classified as forest according to NFI’s forest definition. The forest definition includes shrub forest. For each forest function (including no special forest function) identified in the survey of the forestry services, the size of the associated forest area is displayed. One forest region may fulfil several different forest functions and may thus contribute to the forest area for several forest functions.
