DEFORESTATION IN WORLD HERTITAGE SITE BIALOWIEZA OVER 25 YEARS

 

 

Bialowieza primeval forest is the only fragment of natural deciduous and mixed forest in the European lowland. The forest has an outstanding biological value and is on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.

 (Last time observed cleared: blue 1973, green 1987, yellow 1992, red 1997)

 

 

There have been various rumors on rates of deforestation in the World Heritage forest Bialowieza. A multi-temporal deforestation analysis was made from Landsat data over a 25 years period (1973-97), assisted by LISS 5 m resolution data. The result showed a general decrease in deforestation following a change in logging practice.
