Data extracted from FIA EVALIDator: forestland area by stand age (20 year age classes).

Purpose

Stand age diversity represents the presence of a large range of age classes in the forest. The age of the trees in a forest provides us a sense of the amount of time since a stand-replacing disturbance event has occurred, such as a hurricane or a timber harvest. Across our forests, we want a diversity of stand ages, with some stands being young and new and others being old and in place for a long time. This provides a diversity of habitat for a range of wildlife, and resilience to change.
