The nation's Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program is moving from a periodic to an annual forest inventory system. The annual system will better meet the increasing demand for current information and is backed by legislative mandate in the 1998 Farm Bill.

FIA personnel should be proud of the public support that led to this opportunity and respond quickly and decisively to a clear mandate for change.
