This project is supported by the United States Department of
Agriculture (USDA) through the United States Forest Service (USFS)
Southern Research Station.
The Southern Research Station is part of the nation's largest forestry
research organization - USDA Forest Service Research and Development,
which is the leading organization for research on natural resource
management and sustainability in the United States. Its mission is to
create the science and technology needed to sustain and enhance southern
forest ecosystems and the benefits they provide.
We have been collaborating with the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA)
unit of the USFS Southern Research Station. At this unit, scientists are
working on developing, analyzing and maintaining forest resource information
that is essential for formulation of forest policies and programs.
