Description: The definition of forest land used by the USDA Forest Service’s Forest Inventory and Analysis program includes area, width, and density requirements. These requirements frequently exclude from the inventory any trees occupyingnarrow riparian corridors or linear tree plantings (e.g., windbreaks and shelterbelts). With recent attention being paid to such topics as bio-fuel production and carbon sequestration, motivation exists to account for trees outside the forest (TOF). Because much of the tree cover in the Plains States occurs as TOF as opposed to definitional forest land, alternative methods are needed for collecting and reporting information about landscapes dominated by agricultural practices.
