“The information we collect is added to the national database to give policymakers the data they need to make informed decisions for the future of our forest resources,” said FIA Coordinator Carri Abner.

“We appreciate landowners allowing us access to their land so we will have an accurate assessment of Oklahoma's trees and forests,” Abner said.

Crews will be traveling in marked Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry vehicles and will be carrying proper identification with them.

Landowners and lessees can assist in this endeavor by granting crews access to property if an plot falls on their land, as well as telling others about the program.

They are also welcome to be present when the crew is working.
