Uncertainties: trend - Change in forest area compared to 35-year mean (1985-2020)

Detailed Description

A tile map of the U.S. with lollipop charts for each state that show differences in forest area magnitude, in squared kilometers, from the 35-year mean (1985-2020) across the contiguous United States (CONUS). Positive differences are shown in forest green lollipops and negative differences are shown in burnt orange lollipops. There is variation in forest area difference across CONUS. Notably, much of the U.S. have seen declines in forest area magnitude in recent years, whereas the Northern Plains (such as North Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas) have seen a slight increase in recent years.
