    Under the authority of the McSweeney-McNary Forest Research Act of May 22, 1928, and subsequent amendments, the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, conducts a series of continuing forest surveys of all states to provide up-to-date information about the forest resources of the nation. A resurvey of the forest resources of the three southern New England States-Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island-was undertaken in 1971 by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station some 19 years after the initial forest survey. The Experiment Station staff had the cooperation of the Connecticut Commission of Parks and Forests, the Massachusetts Department of Natural Resources, and the Rhode Island Department of Natural Resources. Carl E. Mayer, project leader, directed the resurvey. Joseph E. Barnard was in charge of computing and tabulating all inventory data. He was assisted in this task by David R. Dickson. James T. Bones, with assistance from state personnel in these three states, collected and compiled the data on timber removals and timber-products output. Teresa M. Bowers assisted with the compilations and checked the statistical data. Carmela M. Hyland assisted with administrative services for the field personnel during the survey. This report summarizes the forest-resource situation and the changes that have taken place since the initial survey. More detailed data for individual states and counties may be obtained in other publications resulting from this resurvey. Users having a need for such data should contact the Forest Survey Project, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, 6816 Market Street, Upper Darby, Pa. 19082. Users of these data are strongly advised to read carefully the definitions of forest-survey terms and the section on the reliability of the estimates in the appendix of this report.
