The Swedish National Forest Inventory undertakes the necessary work required for SLU to fulfill it's undertaking as the authority responsible for official statistics within the field of "Forest Status and change". The NFI's advisory board is a forum where issues connected to forestry statistics can be discussed. The NFI's advisory board also acts as the advisory board to the Swedish National Soil Survey.
