Description: This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in Indiana based on an inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Northern Research Station in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Estimates are based on field data collected using the FIA annualized strategic sample design and are updated yearly. The estimates are for the measurement years 2010-2015 with comparisons to estimates reported in 2010. The current 2010-2015 sample set consists of 6,272 plots with 1,592 plots forested or partially forested. About 14.3 percent of the plots were measured each year with observations collected over 6 years. Data used in this publication were accessed from the FIA database in April 2016. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005) and O'Connell et al. (2014) for definitions and technical details. FIA estimates, tabular data, and maps may be generated at:
