Description: Truk is one of the four States of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). Knowledge of the extent and composition of its vegetation, including forest land, is needed for land-use planning. To fill this need, a formal agreement was drawn up between the High Commissioner of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands and two agencies of the U.S. Department of Agriculture-the Soil Conservation Service and the Forest Service, to map the vegetation of Truk. Three vegetation maps were prepared by the Forest Service in cooperation with the Government of the State of Truk, for land-use planning and to provide a basis for forest surveys. This bulletin summarizes the vegetation for four of the islands of Truk, presents the three vegetation maps, and describes the vegetation types, their ecological function, and uses. A breakdown of nonforest types is also provided.
