Description: The National Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) program monitors the long-term status, changes and trends in the health of forest ecosystems and is conducted in cooperation with individual states. In Maryland, 40 FHM plots were established in 1991. Beginning in 1998, 95 plots were added. Each plot is a series of four fixed-area circular plots. Most tree measurements are made on four 1/24-acre subplots. Seedling and sapling measurements are made on four 1/300-acre microplots, located within the subplots. From 1996 to 1999, all 135 plots in Maryland were visited at least once. This report summarizes the most recent conditions.
