Overview

Overview of recent biomass reports for Montana

Similarities in information needs

Current deficits and possible solutions to information needs

similarities in information needs
Similarities in information needs
  • Outside of wilderness/roadless areas
    • Non-reserved timberland and distance to road
    • Intersection of plots with wilderness and inventoried roadless
  • Remove old growth from the estimates
    • Stand age as reported in EVALIDator
    • Determined by whether plot met old growth criteria used by Region 1 NFS and MT DNRC
similarities in information needs1
Similarities in information needs
  • Biomass on live trees:
    • “All live biomass on timberland”
    • Merchantable bole, non-merch bole, and crown
  • Standing dead tree biomass
    • From Larry Deblander (IW-FIA analyst)
    • Derived using methods consistent to live biomass estimates via the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS)
similarities in information needs2
Similarities in information needs
  • Analysis Area
    • All owners
    • R1 lands within 40 mile and 70 mile working circle
possible improvements
Possible improvements
  • Ability to attribute FIA plots with (even a few) common spatial datasets used within a state
    • Example: wilderness and inventoried roadless
  • Ability to attribute FIA plots with common classifications used within a state
    • Example: Old growth
possible improvements1
Possible improvements
  • More biomass attributes available
    • Crown. Dead trees. (We have a beetle epidemic – just live tree info is of limited value.)
  • Ability to access, attribute, and easily analyze all the plots for a state to meet information needs
