The image above shows USFS vegetation stand types for the Hare Creek Calwater planning watershed based on a 1994 Landsat image. The stand types are only accurate at the one-hectare scale. Large patches of Non-Forest and Saplings (<5" diameter trees) occur in the west of the watershed due to urbanization. Patches of similar vegetation in interior basin areas are likely the result of recent clear cuts. Medium-Large Trees (20-29.9") occur in large patches throughout the watershed. Patches of young forest show as Small and Small/Medium trees. See Info Links for more information. Taken from the KRIS Big River Map project.
