This publication provides an overview of the forest resources in Ohio based upon inventories conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the Northern Research Station. Information about the national and regional FIA program is available online at http://fia.fs.fed.us. Since 2001, FIA has implemented an annual inventory in Ohio. For the 2013 inventory, estimates for current variables, such as forest area, volume, and biomass, are based on 4,296 plots (both forested and nonforest) inventoried from 2009-2013. Change variables, such as net growth, removals, and mortality, are based on 4,186 plots collected in 2001-2006 and resampled in 2009-2013. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005) and O'Connell et al. (2013) for definitions and technical details.
