    Description

    For a 3-year period, from 2010-2012, the New Mexico Forestry Division utilized contractors to collect Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data in New Mexico. Funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the State partnered with the Interior West FIA Program. Together, both agencies collected data on approximately 6,450 plots. This effort represents the largest statewide inventory of forest and woodlands to date for New Mexico. The data collection schedule deviated from standard FIA protocols of collecting annual panels of data each year; in contrast, this project collected data on an accelerated, compressed schedule that rapidly produced a current and comprehensive forest inventory dataset. Data analysis is published elsewhere and the focus of this report is to document the process of the data collection.
