“The Nations Forest Census”

The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program provides the information needed to assess America’s forests.

As the Nation’s continuous forest census, FIA projects how forests are likely to appear 10 to 50 years from now, helping stakeholders to evaluate whether current forest management practices are sustainable in the long run.

FIA data collection reports on status and trends in forest area and location; in the species, size, and health of trees. FIA is conducted in both rural and urban environments. Additional services include:

  • Fire effects modeling with FVS
  • Down Woody Materials Transects
  • Soil Sampling
  • Brown’s Transects
  • Scott and Burgan (RMRS, 2005) Condition FuelBed type fire effects monitoring
  • Whitebark Pine monitoring
  • Tree core collection and analysis

Skylight Forestry provides rural and urban FIA contracting services to public agencies nation-wide.
