Abstract:
This report provides an overview of forest resources in Rhode Island based on an inventory 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. Results are for the measurement years 2011-2016 with comparisons made to 2007-2011* (see footnote on bottom of page 2). Forest resource measurements were taken on 125 plots with about 14 percent of the plots measured each year. Growth, mortality, and removals statistics are based on 109 remeasured plots. Estimates will be updated and published annually. For core tables and more information, including definitions and technical details, please refer to the inventory citations on page 4 of this report or visit fia.fs.fed.us. A complete set of inventory tables is available at https://doi.org/10.2737/FS-RU-131.
