Forest Inventory and Analysis Plots Provide Foundational Data for Experimental Forest Network

Year: 2020
New Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plots are being installed across the Southern Research Station Experimental Forest Network. The purpose of these plots is to:Generate baseline data about tree attributes and forest health,Create a universal sampling method, andProvide an infrastructure for lon...

Water samples provide further guidance on how best to protect water quality at stream crossings in Piedmont forests

Year: 2017
Sedimentation inputs to streams are some of the biggest current and future challenges for land and water managers. Preventing stream sediment generated from silvicultural activities requires an understanding of local inputs. A recent Forest Service study provides sediment data that resource managers...

Forest Cover Plays a More Critical Role in Regulating Water Resources in the Piedmont than in the Mountains and Coastal Plain

Year: 2015
The mountains, Piedmont, and coastal plain are three distinct land provinces across the southeastern U.S. Population density, topography, and types of forests are unique to each region, resulting in a range of different water resource needs and responses to land cover changes. Understanding how stre...
