This science update provides an overview of forest resources in Minnesota 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 Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Estimates are based on field data, collected using the FIA annualized sample design, for the measurement years 2009-2013 with comparisons made to field data collected using the annual design in 2004-2008. The 2009-2013 sample data consist of 6,221 field measured plots on forest land, with about 20 percent collected per year. Data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA Database in April 2014.
