Description

Forest inventory and analyses and shared stewardship have become more important today than ever before. With diminishing resources and limited budgets, land managers may struggle to support the 2012 Planning Rule, which requires forests to use the best available science. Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) scientists, Forest Inventory Analysis (FIA), and National Forests (NFS) land managers and planners have been partnering together to improve Forest Planning processes and goals.
