New York's Forest Data

The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program provides an inventory of New York's forests, and is a cooperative effort between the United States Dept. of Agriculture Forest Service Northern Research Station, New York Department of Environmental Conservation, and New York State forest landowners. This report summarizes the continuing inventory of timber resources on 3,000 sample plots across all the state's forests conducted from 2008-2012, and provides status and trends of forest area, tree species, size, forest health, tree volume growth vs. removals, and many other important characteristics. This inventory allows us to evaluate current management practices and the overall condition of forests across New York to help us manage this resource for future generations.
