Abstract

This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in North Dakota based on an inventory conducted by the USDA Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program within 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. Information about the national and regional FIA program is available at http://fia.fs.fed.us. For the 2016 inventory, estimates for variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 7,595 plot samples collected from 2011-2016. Change variables such as net growth, removals, and mortality are based on 7,588 samples collected in 2006-2011 and 2011-2016. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtoldand Patterson (2005) and O'Connell et al. (2016) for definitions and technical details.
