European Forestry Dynamics Model (EFDM)

The European Forestry Dynamics Model (EFDM) simulates the development of the forest and estimates volume of wood harvested for any given forested area. This estimate can be broken down by, for example, species, site quality, management regime and ownership category. EFDM was conceived as a flexible system for harmonized forestry modelling. It was developed to process data from Europe’s National Forest Inventories. Since this data is not standardized, nor is it necessarily available outside of its owner country, EFDM has been developed as a modular system in freely available software (R).
