    Description

    This report summarizes the first full annual inventory of New York's forests, conducted in 2002-2007 by the U.S. Forest Service, Northern Research Station. New York's forests cover 19.0 million acres; 15.9 million acres are classified as timberland and 3.1 million acres as reserved and other forest land. Forest land is dominated by the maple/beech/birch forest type that occupies more than half of the forest land. The volume of growing stock on timberland has been rising and currently totals 29.2 billion cubic feet, enough to produce saw logs equivalent to 87.1 billion board feet. On timberland, average annual growth of growing stock outpaced removals by a ratio of 2.0:1. The net change in growing-stock volume averaged 1.2 percent per year in 1993-2007. The report includes additional information on forest attributes, land use, forest fragmentation, forest ownership, forest health indicators, timber products, and statistics and quality assurance of data collection. Detailed information on forest inventory methods and data quality estimates is included in a DVD at the back of this report. Tables of population estimates and a glossary are also included.
