This Information Note reviews the value of intensive monitoring and the light it has shed on important environmental and forestry policy issues. Examples are drawn from the range of Level II datasets to demonstrate the greater understanding that can be gained when evaluations consider how different environmental drivers and forest responses interact with one another, thus reflecting the complexity of forest ecosystems. In addition, the data also allow us to evaluate the health of British forests at the beginning of the 21st century and, looking forward, identify those environmental stresses that are likely to be of most concern in the future.
