Abstract

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.1Information 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 2017 inventory, estimates for current variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 4,272 (1,646 forested) plot samples collected from 2011 to 2017. Change variables such as net growth, removals, and mortality are based on 4,125 (1,510 forested) samples collected from 2006–2011 and remeasuredfrom 2011–2017. Estimates from previous inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005), Gormanson et al. (2018), and O'Connell et al. (2017) for definitions and technical details. A complete set of inventory tables is available at https://doi.org/10.2737/FS-RU-171.
