The stability of mean wood specific gravity across stand age in US forests despite species turnover

Publications Posted on: September 14, 2019
Research Highlights: Estimates using measurements from a sample of approximately 132,000 field plots imply that while the species composition of US forests varies substantially across different age groups, the specific gravity of wood in those forests does not.

Harvesting forest biomass in the US southern Rocky Mountains: cost and production rates of five ground-based forest operations

Publications Posted on: September 14, 2019
The forests of the southern Rocky Mountains of North America have experienced substantial change since European colonization. High-grade logging, forest grazing practices, and fire suppression have altered once park-like ponderosa pine-dominated ecosystems into dense forests in need of restoration treatments, but such treatments are challenged by the low-value wood products removed during treatment.

Publications Posted on: October 19, 2018
This report summarizes the most recent inventory of Wyoming’s forests based on field data collected between 2011 and 2015. The report includes descriptive highlights and tables of area, numbers of trees, biomass, carbon, volume, growth, mortality, and removals. Most sections and tables are organized by forest type or forest-type group, species group, diameter class, or owner group.

Comprehensive inventory of Utah's forest resources, 1993

Publications Posted on: August 01, 2018
This report presents the results of an inventory of Utah's forest lands, completed in 1995. It is the first of its kind for the Interior West States in that it includes all forested lands, regardless of ownership or administrative status. It also includes information on a multitude of forest ecosystem attributes.

A strategic assessment of forest biomass and fuel reduction treatments in Western States

Publications Posted on: August 01, 2018
This assessment characterizes, at a regional scale, forest biomass that can potentially be removed to implement the fuel reduction and ecosystem restoration objectives of the National Fire Plan for the Western United States. The assessment area covers forests on both public and private ownerships in the region and describes all standing tree volume including stems, limbs, and tops.
