Abstract

The Northern Research Station's Forest Inventory and Analysis Program (NRSFIA) collects forest-related data throughout a 24-state region in the northeastern United States, ranging from North Dakota to Maine and Kansas to Maryland. Based on discussions with stakeholders and others, NRS-FIA found that the impact of non-native invasive plants (NNIPs) may be known at the local level but their regional abundance, impact, range, and rate of spread are not well understood. In 2005 and 2006, NRS-FIA sampled for the presence and percent cover class of 25 selected non-native invasive species on forested plots in the Upper Midwest states. The species were selected based on the threat posed to our forested ecosystems, the extent of their range, detectability of these species in summer or winter, and level of interest by our stakeholders.
