Forest Inventory and Analysis begins work on Hawaiian Islands
Forest Inventory and Analysis work began on the Hawaiian Islands with installation of potential study plots on O'ahu, Lanai, and Hawaii. The Pacific Northwest(PNW) Research Station is responsible for delivering the Forest Inventory and Analysis program in Hawaii and is partnering with the Hawaii Division of Forestry and Wildlife, the Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry, and numerous other agencies including state governments and foresters throughout the Pacific to implement this inventory.
In 2010, the PNW Research Station hired Hawaiian field crew who installed most of the potential plots on the islands of O'ahu and Lanai and began work on the island of Hawaii. The station also strengthened its partnerships with the Hawaii Division of Forestry and Wildlife and the Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry and established itself as an important future resource to understanding the status and trends of Hawaii's forest resources.
