DescriptionThe Forest Survey is a Nation-wide activity of the Forest Service. The fivefold purpose of the Forest Survey is: (1) to make a field inventory of the present supply of standing timber; (2) to find out how fast this supply is being increased through growth; (3) to find out how fast it is being diminished through industrial and domestic uses, windfall, fire, disease, and other causes; (4) to determine the present consumption and the probable future trend in requirements for forest products, and ( 5) to interpret and correlate these findings with existing and anticipated economic conditions as an aid in formulating both private and public policies for use of land suitable for forest production. The Forest Survey is conducted in the various regions by the forest experiment stations of the Forest Service. In Kentucky the project was directed by the Central States Forest Experiment Station with headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.
