World Forest Inventory 1958

The 1958 inventory utilized the replies of the 143 countries or territories (88 percent of the global forest area). This information was supplemented by the replies to the 1953 questionnaire for 13 countries (2 % of the global forest area) and to the 1947 questionnaire for 5 countries (3 % of the global forest area). Changes of definitions and concepts affected comparability with the previous inventory.
