    Description

    The model FIBER (Forest Increment Based on Ecological Rationale) was selected by the Technical Review Team on the Sustainability of Timber Supplies in the State of Maine to construct yield information using USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) field data. FIBER habitat criteria based on soil characteristics, species composition of overstory, and adjusted understory trees were used to classify FIA plots compared to the past and present records of the FIA inventory forest typing. Yield curves based on ecological classification and species compositional succession were constructed for input into the model ATLAS (Aggregate Timberland Assessment).
