Abstract

This resource update provides an overview of the forest resources in New York based on inventories conducted by the USDA 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. Information about the national and regional FIA programs is available online at http://fia.fs.fed.us. Since 2002, FIA has implemented an annual inventory in New York. For the 2017 inventory, estimates for current variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 4,701 plot samples (3,186 forested) collected from 2011–2017. Change variables such as net growth, removals, and mortality are based on 4,538 plots (3,037 forested) collected in 2005–2011 and remeasuredin 2011–2017. Estimates from earlier inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005), Gormanson et al. (2018), and Burrill et al. (2018) for definitions and technical details. A complete set of inventory tables is available at https://doi.org/10.2737/FS-RU-170.
