This resource update provides an overview of the forest resources in Ohio based on inventories conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the Northern Research Station. Estimates are based on field data collected using the FIA annualized sample design and are updated yearly. (See footnote on page 4.) 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 2014 inventory, estimates for current variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 4,281 plot samples (both forested and nonforest) collected from 2009 to 2014. Change variables such as net growth, removals, and mortality are based on 4,160 plots collected from 2005 to 2009 and remeasured from 2009 to 2014. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison.
