Abstract

The first annual inventory of the Hoosier National Forest reports more than 200,000 forest land acres dominated by oaks, maples, and hickories with annual growth exceeding annual mortality by a factor of seven. When compared to forests in the rest of Indiana, the Hoosier's forests are on average older, have greater biomass per acre, and possess a greater proportion of larger trees. This report provides the public with a set of forest statistics that may be used in the Hoosier's land management decisionmaking process.
