Abstract

The Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program implemented a nationally consistent annual inventory system in 1998. Under the new design, one-fifth of all inventory plots in South Carolina are visited each year. The southern FIA unit, working cooperatively with South Carolina Forestry Commission crews, established the State’s initial annual inventory plots during the 2001 survey. A complete remeasurement of the annual plots was accomplished over the next 5 years. Results from that 2006 inventory were published in the State’s first 5-year report (RB–SRS–158). A new cycle of annual remeasurement began immediately following the 2006 inventory and will be completed by the end of 2011. This factsheet presents forest resource estimates for South Carolina based on annual data collected up through 2010.
