Forest Inventory

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

In FY2011, the BIA started integrating remote sensing into forest inventory and management planning efforts in remote, low timber value and inaccessible areas to meet a 2015 Forest Management Deadline. This deadline states that all Reservations with forested land must be under a management plan by the end of 2015. Some of these reservation lands are remote and have limited access to the forested areas, others are bordering Mexico and are dangerous places for field collection and others are not accessible for various reasons.
