Abstract

This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in Minnesota 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 Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Estimates are based on field data collected during measurement years 2012-2016 with comparisons made to field data collected in 2007-2011. The 2012-2016 sample data consist of 6,176 field measured plots on forest land, with 20 percent collected per year. Data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA database in March 2017 based on methods described in Bechtold and Patterson (2005) and O'Connell et al. (2016).
