Washington's forest resources: Forest Inventory and Analysis, 2002-2011.

Abstract

This report highlights key findings from data collected by the Forest Inventory and Analysis program across all forest land in the state of Washington from 2002 through 2011, updating previously published findings from data collected up to 2006. We summarize and interpret basic resource information such as forest area, composition, ownership, volume, biomass, and carbon stocks; forest structure and function topics such as biodiversity, forest age, and dead wood; disturbance information such as wildfire, root disease, and invasive plants; and include data on tree growth, mortality, and removals for timber products.
