The latest generation of commercial satellite sensors
provides image products with very high geometric resolution (VHR).
VHR images have been extensively exploited in the last years for
monitoring forest ecosystem conditions. This chapter presents a
review of applications in several fields: forest assessment, forest
mapping, detection of stand structural attributes, forest disturbances,
estimation of forest biomass and other biophysical variables. Current
scientific knowledge under each issue is discussed and most
promising classification techniques and approaches are outlined
