State Inventory Data Status


South Carolina

Tables and inventory summaries for current and previous FIA surveys and analytical reports are listed below. Tables are provided for each report year and can be downloaded as a pdf file (requires Adobe reader) or as Excel spreadsheets. The tables differ among report years. Beginning with the 2006 report year, a standard set (1-35) of tables was provided to assist in change analysis. Definitions for terms used in the reports and tables are provided in the SRS-FIA Standard Glossary. Electronic copies of the reports are available at www.srs.fs.fed.us/pubs/ or hardcopies can be obtained by phoning SRS Science Delivery Group (828-257-4830) or sending an email to pubrequest@fs.fed.us.

Report year

Resource estimates for the 1978, 1986, and 1993 report years were based on periodic (roughly 10-year) remeasurement of variable-radius inventory plots randomly located across the State. Beginning in 2001, a systematic fixed-radius annual inventory plot design was installed. The 2006 report year represents the first complete remeasurement of the annual inventory sample plots (see Inventory methods section of each report for details).

Annual Inventory- Moving Average Tables

Under FIA’s annual inventory system, 20 percent (one panel) of the sample plots, spatially distributed across the state, are remeasured each year. Thus, a complete remeasurement of all of South Carolina’s sample plots is accomplished every 5 years. Data from the most recent panel of plots (2012), combined with plot data from the previous four panels (2008-2011), provides an update of forest resource estimates averaged over the past five years. This “moving average” approach allows for identification and tracking of changes to the resource occurring annually. (Note: There are 25 plots used in the 2012 evaluation that were collected in 2007)
