TIGER for Woodlands and Compartments will analyze traditional inventory data and 100% inventories of whatever type of trees you select. Traditional inventories are ones in which a series of points (prism plots) or plots (fixed area) are established in a forested area and basic tree characteristics, such as species, DBH, and merchantable height, are noted and recorded. A 100% inventory is one in which measurements similar to those done for a traditional inventory are done but only for trees that meet some criteria, such as to be removed in a thin or being a black walnut.
TIGER programs have been developed for 20 midwestern and northeastern states. Each program is slightly different in that the list of species changes along with the default volume tables and some other state specific adaptations, but they "look" a lot alike and do essentially the same thing.
You can read information about each state's version of TIGER by clicking "Details by state" in the menu to the left.
If you are interested in doing a forest inventory but don't know much about how to do an inventory or would like to learn more about forest inventory, click "Me do an inventory?" in the menu to the left.
From this page you can walk through the program by clicking "View the program" in the menu to the left.
