The USDA Forest Service is developing Procedures for annual forest inventories to establish the capability of producing annual estimates of forested area, timber volume, related variables, and changes in these variables. The inventory system (JAFIMS) features an annual sample of measured field plots; remote sensing; a database of plot and tree information; logistical procedures for supporting field crews; and an optional function, mechanisms for updating the status of plots measured in previous years. The discussion focuses on system implementation in the North Central region.
