NASF State Forestry Statistics

Added By Infochimps

Approximately every two years the National Association of State Foresters conducts a survey of its 59 members to capture key information about the non-federal forestlands in the United States and the role of State Foresters in enhancing their value, representing public interests, and protecting these lands from fire, disease, fragmentation and other resource threats. The survey includes information about forestry programs, agency budgets, and funding support pertinent to each state and territory.

A new report from NASF, “State Foresters by the Numbers: Data and Analysis from the 2008 NASF State Forestry Statistics Survey,” summarizes the responses received from members for fiscal year 2008, which were reported to NASF in July of 2009 with 48 of the 50 states, and the District of Columbia, providing responses.

Previous year’s surveys from 2006, 2004, 2002, and 1998 as well as data from a few outside sources are also included in some of the analysis. Complete data from survey years 1998-2008 is available in a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet.
