Welcome to ICP Forests


– the International Co-operative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Air Pollution Effects on Forests operating under the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) –


A programme aiming at a comprehensive compilation of information on the condition of forests in Europe and beyond


ICP Forests was launched in 1985 under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in response to wide public and political concern over extensive forest damage that had been observed in Europe in the beginning of the 1980s. ICP Forests monitors forest condition in Europe at two monitoring intensity levels: The Level I monitoring is based on around 6000 observation plots on a systematic transnational grid of 16 x 16 km throughout Europe to gain insight into the geographic and temporal variations in forest condition while the Level II intensive monitoring comprises around 500 plots in selected forest ecosystems with the aim to clarify cause-effect relationships. At present 42 countries participate in ICP Forests.

19th Needle/Leaf Interlaboratory Comparison Test 2016/17

Dear colleagues,

registration for this test ended in July 2016 - till now 45 laboratories participate (see timetable). For this test three spruce and one pine needle sample were prepared. The results for the elements S, N. P, K, Ca, Mg, C, Zn, Mn, Fe, Cu, Pb, Cd and B will be evaluated. Other elements can be analyzed – especially results of heavy metals like As, Co, Cr, Hg, Mo, Ni, Tl and V are most welcome. Deadline for the online result submission is 2017-01-01. There is no possibility to enlarge this deadline.

Please, keep in mind that all participating laboratories within the ICP-FORESTS monitoring program have to participate in the Interlaboratory Comparison Test too, otherwise no monitoring data submission is possible!

If you want to participate in this Interlaboratory Comparison Test please contact me per email.

All the best
