Biotic Inventory


Location of Rare Plants in Clinch Mountain Preserve Forest PlotsFor each new 500-Year Forest we hire scientists to perform a biotic inventory of the forest. This is a year-long process with seasonal visits to the forest. With this information and with the owner’s inputs, we prepare a ten-year plan. Our objective is to produce, maintain, and care for the budding old–growth forest. We plan to inventory every ten years. We have been told that this information gathered over the years will make a valuable contribution to the understanding of forests.
