Forests play a fundamental role in various aspects, providing products, goods and services that contribute to the economy and to the protection of the environment. Forests, in fact, provide timber and non-wood forest products, as well as a number of ecological and environmental services such as water quality, carbon storage, nature conservation including protection of biological diversity and recreation (FAO 2015a).The multi-functional role of forests has to be carefully evaluated when planning their utilization. One of the main challenges, in fact, is to conciliate many different interests, finding a balance to satisfy the economical requests without destroying the integrity of forests ecology (e.g. MacDicken et al. 2015). 4EST project aims at creating a digital platform to support the environmental, socio-cultural and economic decisions that involve the Sustainable Forest Management, by collecting and analysing data and ensuring the sustainability of the forest ecological function,
