Description

This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in Kentucky based on an inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Southern Research Station. Estimates are based on field data collected using the FIA annualized sample design and are updated yearly. The estimates presented in this update are for the measurement year 2014 with comparisons made to data reported in 2013. The sample plot population in Kentucky consists of 4,356 plots (2,469 forested plots), collected across a period of 5 years (about 20 percent of the data per year). Growth, removals, and mortality estimates are based on 98 percent of the total sample, or about 4,266 plots.
