Description

The USDA Forest Service conducts continuing forest inventories of all states to obtain up-to-date information about the forest resources of the Nation. In 1997, the Forest Service in cooperation with the New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands completed a new inventory of New Hampshire. Previous inventories were conducted in 1948, 1960, 1973, and 1983. Following data collection for the 1997 inventory, a devastating ice storm struck New England. To account for losses to this storm, field plots were revisited and new measurements taken in areas that incurred heavy damage. The many significant changes in New Hampshire?s forests during the last inventory period are highlighted here.
