Current ResearchSjana Schanning collects field data and performs data analysis and reporting for the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program. This program of the U.S. Forest Service provides the information needed to assess America's forests.
The long history of scientifically credible FIA data provides critical status and trend information to resource managers, policy makers, investors, and the public through a system of annual resource inventory that covers both public and private forest lands across the United States.
FIA reports on status and trends in forest area and location; in the species, size, and health of trees; in total tree growth, mortality, and removals by harvest; in wood production and utilization rates by various products; and in forest land ownership.
