Resource Update FS-33. Newtown Square, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northern Research Station. 4 p.
This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in North 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 North Dakota Forest Service. 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 2014 with comparisons made to data reported in 2009. In the 2014 inventory, NRS-FIA is now measuring 1/7th (14.3 percent) of the plots annually and plans to continue this, reaching a 7-year cycle in the 2020 inventory. The complete set of plots is being retained. All inventory estimates (both current and change) will continue being based on the most recent measurements taken on these plots.
