Forest are the lungs of the earth, many species including our own rely on their services. To diagnose forest changes and forest condition remote sensing provides information of great value. Among others, most remarkable performance is achieved when using Landsat time series to describe historic, current and future forest change processes. Because climate change and its mitigation policies effect societies at large, the status and ongoing research of remote sensing support towards Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is presented.
