Publication updated February 9, 2018 to correct the number of forest field plots (page 1).This resource update provides an overview of forest resources in Wisconsin based on an inventory conducted by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program at the Northern Research Station in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR). Data 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 2016. For annual inventory years in Wisconsin 2001-2013, the cycle length was equal to 5 years; beginning in 2014, the cycle length was changed to 7 years with 1/7 (14.3 percent) of the plots measured annually. This report includes inventory years 2011-2016 (2016) with comparisons made to 2007-2011 (2011). The current data was collected from 6,417 forested field plots.
