      The U.S. land area covers nearly billion acres. In , the latest update to ERS's Major Land Uses (MLU) series, grassland pasture and range uses accounted for the largest share of the Nation's land base, surpassing land in forest uses, which includes grazed forest land, for the first time since Although the shares of land in different uses have fluctuated to some degree over time.   Tribal nations in the United States have sovereign ownership of more than 56 million acres of U.S. land and have rights to natural resources—including .

Land use is surprisingly dynamic, with annual shifts in and out of different uses. Examining net change in land use reveals general trends, but masks the real extent of land use change over time.

In agriculture there are frequent shifts in the use of land among cropland, pastureland, rangeland, and forest land. National Resources Inventory A statistical survey of land use and natural resource conditions and trends on U.S.

non-Federal lands. The National Resources Inventory (NRI) program collects and produces scientifically credible information on the status, condition, and trends of land, soil, water, and related resources on the Nation’s non-federal lands in support of efforts to protect, restore.

The U.S. had a number of programs that use statistical surveys and remote sensing approaches to generate land cover information. The Forest Inventory and Analysis Program of the U.S. Forest Service provides the information needed to assess status and trends in America's forests (Gillespie, ).

Natural regeneration, which Germans call naturverjüngung, involves the establishment of a new forest from self-sown seed, coppice shoots, or root suckers (Nieuwenhuis ). As we will discuss later in this chapter, shelterwood or seed tree harvests can be used to promote the development of self-sown seed from which a new forest can emerge.

FAO Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA) provides essential information for understanding the extent of forest resources, their condition, management and uses.

The latest of these assessments, FRAexamines the status of, and trends in, more than 60 forest-related variables in countries and territories in the period –   1. Introduction. Land cover is a fundamental variable that impacts on and links many parts of the human and physical environments.

Land cover change is, for example, regarded as the single most important variable of global change affecting ecological systems (Vitousek, ) with an impact on the environment that is at least as large as that associated with climate change (Skole, ).

During major wildfires, DNR and our wildfire response partners work to ensure you receive accurate information as quickly as possible.

The best way to get up-to-date information on wildfires is to follow the #WaWILDFIRE hashtag on Twitter. Part of WDP is the Statistical Forest Inventory (SFI) that assesses the potential of natural resources in a watershed.

In Julyto determine whether the mountains contained enough quality timber to help grow the area’s economy, an inventory was carried out by the Institute of Forest Ecosystem Research, Ltd.

About 80 percent of the Nation’s fresh water originates in forests. Forests absorb water, refilling underground aquifers.
