    Description

    There are two events occurring in Colorado that are concerning forest managers in Colorado. There is severe and widespread mortality of lodgepole pine due to the mountain pine beetle and aspen forests in some areas of the state have experienced widespread, severe, and rapid crown deterioration leading to mortality. Implementation of the Forest Inventory and Analysis annual inventory coincided with the two mortality events, providing an opportunity to test the utility of the annual inventory system. Preliminary analysis suggests that annual inventory data can quantify status and trends.
