Description: The USDA Forest Service, Northern Research Station, Forest Inventory and Analysis (NRS-FIA) program is changing to a Web-based, dynamically linked reporting system. As part of the process, this year NRS-FIA is producing this abbreviated summary of 2005 data. This resource bulletin reports on area, volume, and biomass using data from 2001 through 2005. Estimates from this inventory showed a total of 2.1 million acres of forest land in the State, with almost all of it, 2.0 million acres, classified as timberland. The estimate of total net volume of live trees on forest land was 2.7 billion cubic feet. Kansas net growing-stock volume on timberland was 1.5 billion cubic feet. Aboveground live-tree biomass on timberland was estimated at 70.1 million dry tons.

Keywords: Kansas, annual inventory, forest land, timberland, forest type, volume, biomass
