The Northern Forest Futures database (NFFDB) supports the reporting of both current and projected future forest conditions for the 20 states that make up the U.S. North, an area bounded by Maine, Maryland, Missouri, and Minnesota. The NFFDB database and attendant reporting tools are available to the public as a Microsoft Access database. The NFF_CurrentReports tool generates customized reports for a variety of forest statistics for the 2008 inventory year such as estimates of area, numbers of trees, volume, biomass, average annual net growth, average annual mortality, and average annual removals. The NFF_ProjectionReports program supports the reporting of projected forest statistics by decade through the year 2060 for any of 14 scenarios that reflect varying climatic and socioeconomic possibilities. Also included in this product are the individual Forest Inventory and Analysis database (FIADB) files for the 20 states in the U.S. North which contain data and a reporting tool that can be used to compute estimates of area, numbers of trees, volume, biomass, average annual net growth, average annual mortality, average annual removals, as well as carbon, down woody material biomass, and area change.
