    This resource bulletin consolidates data from the sixth complete survey of Kentucky’s forest resources, which was conducted during the period 2005–09 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program in coordination with the Kentucky Department for Natural Resources Division of Forestry. Data on the extent, condition, and classification of forest land and associated timber volumes, as well as growth, removals, and mortality rates are described and interpreted. Data on forest health and forest landowner characteristics are also evaluated. Estimates of forest resources are reported at multiple scales. The State of Kentucky is divided into seven FIA units that approximate broad physiographic sections of the State delimited by political boundaries. The seven FIA units are (1) Eastern, (2) Northern Cumberland, (3) Southern Cumberland, (4) Bluegrass, (5) Pennyroyal, (6) Western Coalfield, and (7) Western.
