Issues affecting the interpretation of eastern hardwood resource statistics



Issues affecting the interpretation of eastern hardwood resource statistics



Forest Products Journal 50(4): 21-24



Forest inventory statistics developed by the USDA Forest Service are used by customers ranging from forest industry to state and local economic development groups.
