There are numerous continuous forest inventories (CFI) that have recorded forest conditions across the Northeastern United States for the past several decades. The Northeast Forest Inventory (NEFIN) project was developed as a collaborative effort led by the FEMC to aggregate and standardize CFI data from various monitoring programs across the region into a consolidated online tool. The goals of this project are to (1) increase the accessibility and usability of forest inventory data from disparate collections in the northeastern US, (2) demonstrate how the research community can utilize this data for investigating trends in and drivers of forest growth and yield over time, and (3) enable greater exchange of information and expand collaborations around analyzing trends in northeastern forests.  This poster will provide an overview of the tool developed under the NEFIN project that standardizes data from many different continuous inventory programs and provides ways to search, aggregate and download that data.
