At CREAF, we want all the knowledge generated from our top-level research to reach managers, technicians, engineers, and politicians. This way, the management of our environment will be based on scientific information of quality.
We offer a diverse and comprehensive catalog of services in areas such as biodiversity, forest or territorial management. Contact us to describe your necessities and discover how we can assist you!
Knowledge of the condition of the forest both temporally and spatially is essential for planning and managing forests in a rational manner both in the short and long term and with sustainability in mind. Forest inventories are a basic tool for orienting sustainable management and are based on ecological principles and the conservation of the forest.
The inventories are based on a grid of circular parcels with a density of approximately one parcel every 100 hectares. The information acquired allows the complete characterization of the composition and structure of the forest and understory.
A few examples of what we can offer in this field are:
Spanish National Forest Inventories (IFN2, IFN3)
Forest and Ecological Inventory of Catalonia (IEFC)
