Inventory and monitoring efforts conducted by Rocky Mountain Research Station scientists present a systematic compilation of forest statistics of the state.

Nevada’s forests cover 10.6 million acres, or about 16 percent of the State’s land area. These forests encompass a wide variety of environments and forest types that are valued for their scenic beauty, wood and non-timber forest products, wildlife habitat, and ecosystem services. There are 11,428 permanent forest inventory plots in Nevada, and about 17 percent of these plots contain accessible forest land that will continue to be measured by field crews every 10 years. The estimates for this summary were generated from data in the FIA database (FIADB) uploaded in September 2016 (FIA database download).
