Using FIA data in the Forest Vegetation Simulator

Publications Posted on: July 15, 2009
The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) is a national system of forest growth models maintained by the USDA Forest Service. It is the official tool for stand growth projection on National Forest lands, but it is also used widely on other ownerships. Model extensions and post-processors permit FVS users to perform a broad range of functions, including silvicultural manipulations, wildlife habitat analyses, and fuel treatment evaluations.
