DescriptionThe U.S. Forest Service, Northern Research Station's Forest Inventory and Analysis program is continuing its annual inventory of Missouri's forest resources. This report presents estimates of area, volume, and biomass using data for 2005, and growth, removals, and mortality using data for the most recent remeasurement period. Estimates from this inventory showed a total of 14.7 million acres of forest land in the state. The estimate of total net volume of live trees on forest land was 18.8 billion cubic feet. Higher than average mortality values for certain oak species are likely due to the increased age of the state?s forests, as well from a drought-induced oak decline over much of the past 10 years.
