In order to meet new data collection requirements and to cover other subject areas, the indicators were revised from 2001 to 2002 and have since formed the basis for the State of Europe’s Forest Report and national indicator sets.

For over 200 years, the principle of “sustainability” has been the model for managing forests. At the global environmental summit in Rio de Janeiro, it was given a modern and more comprehensive meaning and is now an indispensable part of many central issues of our time – such as environmental and climate protection, innovation, mobility and social security systems.
In each of our Clean Forest Parks, boards have been set up that provide information about the problem of climate change and the forest solution.
Growing trees bind CO2. They convert the greenhouse gas into wood through photosynthesis and subsequent processes. Forests are gigantic carbon stores – they store 200 tons of carbon in up to 400 tons of wood per hectare. Around 600 billion tons of carbon are stored in the biomass of forests worldwide. Through forest care and planting – so the idea – the reservoir can be enlarged and further harmful greenhouse gas carbon dioxide can be removed from the atmosphere.
However, since forests are losing area and quality globally, every tree planting can contribute to the binding of excess CO2. But there are other reasons to maintain forests and plant trees. These include erosion protection, evaporation performance, regulation of the water balance, production of construction wood, firewood and fruits – not to forget the function as an economic and living space for humans and animals.
