Resource Update FS-51. 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 Indiana 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 Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Estimates are based on field data collected using the FIA annualized strategic sample design and are updated yearly. The estimates presented in this update are for the measurement years 2009-2014 with comparisons between estimates reported in 2009. The current, 2009-2014 sample set consists of 6,492 plots with 1,661 of them being forested or partially forested. About 14.3 percent of the plots were measured each year with observations collected across a period of 6 years. Data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA Database in May 2015. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005) and O’Connell et al. (2014) for definitions and technical details. FIA estimates, tabular data, and maps may be generated at http://www.fia.fs.fed.us/tools-data/.
