The 1981 Kansas forest inventory estimated wooded strips to occupy 136,100 hectares with a total length of 87,000 kilometers. Strip length was estimated using line intersect sampling, aerial photography, and ratio estimation. This paper presents the sampling procedure used, estimation and sampling error equations, and estimates some of the current wooded strip resource in Kansas. Forest Sci. 31:282-288.
