Metadata Updated: June 21, 2023

This data publication contains 250 meter raster data depicting the spatial distribution of forest ownership types in the conterminous United States. The data are a modeled representation of forest land by ownership type, and include three types of public ownership: federal, state, and local; three types of private: family (includes individuals and families), corporate, and other private (includes conservation and natural resource organizations, and unincorporated partnerships and associations); as well as Native American tribal lands. The most up-to-date data available were used in creating this data publication. A plurality of the ownership data were from 2014, but some data were as old as 2004.
