This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in South Dakota based on an inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Northern Research Station in cooperation with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, Resource Conservation and Forestry Division. Estimates are based on field data collected using the FIA annualized sample design and are updated yearly. The estimates presented in this update are for the measurement years 2009-2013 with comparisons made to 2004-2008. The sample plot population in South Dakota consists of 381 forested or partially forested plots, with about 20 percent of the plots measured each year. The data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA Database in March 2014.
