Continuous Forest Inventory

CFI monitors a forest over time in order to track growth. Specific inventory points allow the same trees to be repeatedly measured. Individual tree growth, mortality, in-growth (new trees), and the effects of wildlife can all be monitored. Common intervals are 1, 2, 5, and 10 years.
