10-year Stand Exam List MNDNR

This layer is the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) 10-year stand exam list - a forest resource management plan specifying which forest stands the DNR will visit and evaluate for potential harvest during fiscal years 2021 – 2030 (actual harvest is contingent on results of a site visit, public auction, and the operational environment). The DNR Forest Inventory Module (FIM, or Forest Stand Inventory) data are the base for this dataset, which includes additional attributes used to develop the 10-year stand exam list. <br/><br/>For more information, visit the DNR sustainable timber harvest analysis, decisions, and planning webpage ( https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/harvest-analysis/index.html ) and review related documents:<br/><br/>• Sustainable Timber Harvest: Development of the DNR 10-year Stand Exam List Report ( https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/subsection/harvest-analysis/sth-10-year-stand-exam-list-report.pdf ) – this companion report to the 10-year stand exam list data communicates how the 10-year stand exam list was developed to meet decisions associated with DNR’s sustainable timber harvest analysis. It provides context for understanding the 10-year stand exam list and what it means for implementation going forward.<br/><br/>• Documentation of the Spatial Data used during the Sustainable Timber Harvest Projects ( https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/subsection/harvest-analysis/documentation-spatial-data-sth.pdf ) – this expanded metadata document provides more comprehensive information about the attributes in this dataset.<br/><br/>Supplemental Data:<br/><br/>The full FIM snapshot that was used to model the 10-year stand exam list, with attributes added for modeling, is also available in shapefile format from the DNR FTP site: ftp://ftp.dnr.state.mn.us/pub/SFRMPDATA/MBG_STHA/STH_FIM_1P.zip . The full modeling dataset includes all DNR-administered stands with inventory data, totaling approximately 5.4 million acres, some of which are not commercially managed. The dataset used to build the 10-year stand exam list is an extension of the data used for the DNR’s most recent sustainable timber harvest analysis (see MB&G Phase 1, Phase 2, and Final reports - https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/forestry/harvest-analysis/index.html ). Within the full modeling dataset, stands on the 10-year stand exam list are identified with a stand exam year and preliminary management prescription.
