Regenerating Stand Inventory (RSI)

The Regenerating Stand Inventory (RSI) is a spatial dataset containing information on the status of selected previously disturbed stands (i.e. cutblocks or burn sites) in a form of modified forest inventory data. In addition to standard inventory attributes the dataset contains such attributes as stocking and stems per hectare which provide information on the extent of the assessed area that is occupied by trees. In addition, the data contains information on site moisture regime and stand level data such as tree height and species composition for both over-story and under-story layers. The RSI data was collected aerially either by air calls during a helicopter survey or by interpreting aerial photos taken by a fixed wing aircraft. RSI data is used in forest management to better understand natural forest renewal in disturbed areas and to identify slow regenerating areas that could benefit from artificial regeneration.
