The research project "Monitoring of small-scale forest owners in South Tyrol" targets to establish a monitoring system for forest economic figures based on sample small-scaled forest farms. This for three years approved project enables in cooperation with the already existing small-scale forestry system in Austria an annual analysis for the participating farms. The expectation on that long-term orientated monitoring project for the South Tyrolean small-scale forestry is to create among the forest owners awareness to mobilize a bigger amount of timber and to manage the forests sustainably. Above all, the cross-company evaluation for the sector enables the small-scale forest owners to assess transparently their expenditures and revenues. Besides, the time-series data of the periodically determined forest economic parameters deliver a fundamental basis for decision-making on forest policy measures. These periodically elaborated statistics among small-scale forest holders, the cross-company evaluations and time-series data enable a benchmark comparison to depict potentials or deficits in the production processes.
