Building on the success of the 2015 monitoring report, FEMC has worked with project leaders from several of FEMC's flagship monitoring programs as well as other key monitoring programs from around the state to produce another installment of the annual monitoring report. This report provides an overview of the data collected in 2016, as well as a comparison of that data to the long-term trends and the greater context of the information presented.

These trends will be updated yearly to provide an ongoing snapshot of the state and trajectory of key environmental variables in our region's forested ecosystems.
