Description: Forests provide watershed protection, settings for recreation, wildlife habitat, biodiversity, wood and other products, and much more. Forests contribute to the quality of life of each Rhode Island resident making the State a better place in which to live. Some of the significant trends that have occurred in Rhode Island's forests over the last half century are highlighted in this report. The data are summarized from reports published by the USDA Forest Service, which periodically inventories the forest resources of the 50 states. In 1998, the USDA Forest Service, in cooperation with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, Division of Forest Environment completed the fourth statewide inventory of Rhode Island's forests.
