This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Data 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 year 2013 with comparisons made to data reported in 2008. The sample plot population in Wisconsin consists of 12,545 plots, collected across a period of 5 years (about 2,500 plots, or about 20 percent of the data per year). The estimates in 2013 consist of 5 years (100 percent) of data collected using the annualized sampling and estimation procedures. Growth, removals, and mortality estimates are based on 5 years of data (100 percent of the total sample), or 12,545 plots. The data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA database in March and April, 2014.
