    Description

    The USDA, Forest Service, Northeastern Research Station (NE), Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) unit began collecting forest inventory data on an annual basis in Pennsylvania starting this past field season. The forestry community of Pennsylvania has identified forest regeneration as a primary research issue for the inventory to address. New techniques for measuring and quantifying regeneration are needed because existing NE-FIA protocols and national FIA protocols will not provide the level of detail required. A pilot study is being conducted to determine a cost efficient method for measuring tree seedlings, shrubs, and competing vegetation. The study is expected to result in a recommended approach for full implementation next field season.
