Description: This publication provides an overview of forest resources in Maryland based on inventories conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program of the Northern Research Station. From 2004-2013, FIA employed an annual inventory measuring data on 20 percent of all sample plots each year in Maryland. Beginning in 2014, FIA is on a 7-year cycle, inventorying 14.3 percent of all plots annually. For the 2014 inventory, estimates for current variables such as area, volume, and biomass, are based on 1004 plots sampled from 2009-2014. Change variables such as net growth, removals, and mortality are based on 953 samples collected in 2004-2009 and resampled in 2009-2014. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005) and O'Connell et al. (2013) for definitions and technical details.
