    Description

    This paper addresses opportunities presented to states by an annualized forest inventory system, to be conducted by the Forest Inventory and Analysis program of the USDA Forest Service, and concerns about these inventories. The importance of a balanced approach in assessing timber and nontimber attributes is emphasized, and the paramount importance of maintaining and even increasing the credibility and utility of inventories is discussed. Annualized inventories appear to be a very good idea for Nebraska if implemented properly. A key issue facing forestry and agriculture in Nebraska is used to illustrate how annualized inventories can be more informative than the previously implemented periodic surveys in managing a state's land resources.
