Remote sensing and advanced statistical models have been used to assess actual biomass and to analyze the biomass growth in a mature forest of Pinus halepensis Mill. Biomass maps using Landsat-5 in 2011 and Landsat-8 imagery in 2017 and non-parametric models were achieved. Afterwards, a fast and affordable methodology has been developed to monitor the evolution depending on forest management or its abandonment. Significative statistical evidences have been found between two types of management, demonstrating that managed areas have bigger growth potential. This methodology spares the efforts of exhaustive inventories and encourage forest managers to maximize their forest allowances.
