The image above shows USFS vegetation stand types for the South Daugherty 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 throughout the basin areas are likely the result of timber harvest. Medium-Large Trees (20-29.9") occur in patches in upper Daugherty and upper Johnson Creek. Patches of young forest show as extensive patches of Small and Small/Medium trees. See Info Links for more information. Taken from the KRIS Big River Map project.

The map image above shows timber harvests by year according to CDF. Early seral conditions of 1994 Landsat can be correlated to timber harvest history.
