DescriptionThis publication provides an overview of forest resources in New Jersey following an inventory by the U.S. Forest Service, Forest Inventory and Analysis program (FIA), Northern Research Station (NRS). Estimates are derived from field data collected using an annualized sample design and are updated yearly. Beginning in 2014, NRS-FIA switched to a 7-year cycle length. For the 2016 inventory, estimates of current variables such as area, volume, and biomass are based on 1,091 plots measured in 2011-2016. Change variables such as net growth, removals, and mortality are based on 733 plots measured in 2006-2011 and resampled in 2011-2016. Estimates from earlier annual and periodic inventories are shown for comparison. See Bechtold and Patterson (2005), O'Connell et al. (2014), Gormanson et al. (2017) for definitions and technical details. A complete set of inventory tables is available at https://doi.org/10.2737/FS-RU-135
