    Description

    An inventory of land traditionally called "nonforest" and therefore not sampled by the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program was implemented by the FIA unit at the Northeastern Station in 1999 for five counties in Maryland. Biomass and biomass increment were estimated from the nonforest inventory data using techniques developed for application to large-scale inventory data. Results were compared to estimates for forested land in Maryland. We conclude from this work that carbon (C) stocks and fluxes on nonforest land could add substantially to current estimates of local, regional, and national C balances, which are currently based on forest land only.
