The aim of this study was to compare estimates of the net ecosystem exchange (NEE) by two different methods for a small pine forest in the Netherlands. The inventory-based carbon budgeting method estimated the average NEE for 1997-2001 at 202 g C per mr per year, with a confidence interval of 138-271 g C per mr per year. The estimate obtained by the eddy covariance method was 295 g C per mr per year on average for the same period, with a confidence interval of 224-366 g C per mr per year. Uncertainties in both methods are assessed, and recommendations are given for future research.
