Abstract

This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in Nebraska based on inventories conducted by the USDA Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the Northern Research Station. For annual inventory years 2001–2013, the sample length was equal to 5 years. Beginning in 2014, the cycle length was changed to 7 years. For the 2017 inventory, estimates for current variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 8,248 field plot samples (317 forested) collected from 2011–2017. Change variables, such as net growth, removals, and mortality, are based on 8,223 samples (299 forested) collected in 2007–2012 and resampled in 2011–2017. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtoldand Patterson (2005), O'Connell et al. (2014), and Gormansonet al. (2017) for definitions and technical details.
