Description

This science update summarizes the findings of the first statewide annual inventory conducted by the Southern Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program in cooperation with the Texas Forest Service of the forest resource attributes in Texas. The 254 counties of Texas are consolidated into seven FIA survey units—southeast (unit 1), the northeast (unit 2), the north central (unit 3), the south (unit 4), the west central (unit 5), the northwest (unit 6), and the west (unit 7). East Texas is made-up of units 1 and 2, while the central and west Texas consists of units 3 through 7 (fig. 1). This overview represents the period from 2004 to 2008 covering the eighth forest survey of east Texas and 50 percent of the first forest survey for central and west Texas. The 2008 survey provides a complete remeasurement of annual inventory plots for east Texas and the initial establishment of plots in central and west Texas.
