The following mortality and removals queries are returning incorrect summaries in EVALIDator.

  • Average annual mortality of growing-stock trees (at least 5 inches d.b.h.), in cubic feet, on forest land
  • Average annual harvest removals of growing-stock trees (at least 5 inches d.b.h.), in cubic feet, on forest land
  • Average annual other removals of sawtimber trees, in board feet (International 1/4-inch rule), on forest land
  • Average annual other removals of sawtimber trees, in board feet (International 1/4-inch rule), on timberland

In addition the ratio estimate option (i.e. the option to choose a denominator) is returning incorrect estimates for any ratio involving net growth, mortality, or removals on timberland. Ratio estimates involving net growth, mortality, or removals on forest land are working correctly. Ratio estimates are intended to be restricted to timberland-to-timberland or forest land-to-forest land observations but the restriction is currently malfunctioning for timberland-to-timberland observations.

We are working to correct the problem and will update the alert when it has been corrected.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

FIDO is working properly.

  • FIADB has been updated to include the new updated interpretation of the definition of reserved status. All annual data has been reanalyzed in accordance with this interpretation and some previously published values have changed as a result. Change estimates have been recomputed to account for any modifications. For more details please consult the FIADB User Guide (http://www.fia.fs.fed.us/library/database-documentation/).
