Resource Update FS-41. 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 South Dakota based on an inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Northern Research Station (NRS) 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. In 2014, NRS-FIA changed from a 5- to a 7-year inventory cycle, wherein one-seventh, or 14.3 percent, of plots will be measured annually until cycle completion. To ensure that all plots are transitioned to the new cycle length, estimates reported for 2014 include data collected from 2009-2014, with comparisons made to data reported in 2009 (collected from 2005-2009).
