Forest Inventory Data & Tools (FIA)

The USDA's Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program has been monitoring the Nation's public and private forests since 1930 and is often referred to the Nation's Forest Census. The stated mission of the FIA Program is to "make and keep current a comprehensive inventory and analysis of the present and prospective conditions of and requirements for the renewable resources of the forest and rangelands of the US."

The long history of scientifically credible FIA data provides critical status and trend information to resource managers, policy makers, investors, and the public through a system of annual resource inventory that covers both public and private forest lands across the United States.
