Abstract

This publication provides an overview of forest resources in New Hampshire based on inventories conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the Northern Research Station. For annual inventory years 2002-2013, the sample length was equal to 5 years. Beginning in 2014, the cycle length was changed to 7 years. For the 2016 inventory, estimates for current variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 1,164 samples (1,052 forested) collected from 2011-2016. Change variables, such as net growth, removals, and mortality, are based on 893 samples (787 forested) collected in 2004-2010 and resampled in 2011-2016. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtoldand Patterson (2005), Gormanson et al. (2017), and O'Connell et al. (2013) for definitions and technical details.
