Abstract This paper focuses on an analysis of planted forests data from the 2015 Forests Resources Assessment of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organisation (FRA 2015). It forms one of a series of papers in the FRA 2015 special issue of this journal. While total forest area decreased from 4.28 billion hectares to 3.99 billion hectares from 1990 to 2015, with percent global forest cover dropping from 31.85% to 30.85%, the area of planted forests increased from 167.5 to 277.9 million hectares or 4… Expand

Introduction to the Changes in Global Forest Resources from 1990 to 2015
TLDR
Important contributions of global forest resource estimates to forest management, the methods used in the collection and analysis of FRA 2015 data and the characteristics that make this type of global data most useful are described. Expand
Spatial Assessment of Ecosystem Services from Planted Forests in Central Vietnam
Globally, planted forests are increasing, providing increased resources to forest industries and ecosystem services (ES) to local and wider communities. However, assessment of the impacts ofExpand

Projecting the Spatial Distribution of Possible Planted Forest Expansion in the United States
TLDR
This study estimates a spatially explicit logistical regression function to assess the likelihood that forest plots will be planted based on physical, climate, and economic factors and offers insight into the factors that have driven forest planting in the United States historically and the potential distribution of new forest plantings in the coming decades. Expand
The Impact of Accounting for Future Wood Production in Global Vertebrate Biodiversity Assessments
TLDR
A global approach to refine the representation of forest management through allocating future wood production to planted and non-planted forests is presented and shows that, although forest cover changes have the largest impact on biodiversity, changes in wood production also have a significant effect.

Projecting global planted forest area developments and the associated impacts on global forest product markets.
TLDR
By embedding key features of the SSP projections into a global forest sector model, this work evaluates how planted forests lead to different global forest product market outcomes for each SSP, compared to corresponding outcomes where planted forests are not considered separately. Expand
Silviculture and tree breeding for planted forests
One of the main issues facing the forestry sector is balancing the demand for forest products and the sustainable management of forest ecosystems. Efficient plantation management and intensiveExpand
