 You selected the area Blue Waterhole Creek and the topic Map: 1D USFS Vegetation Size, Blue Waterhole Cr. Sub-basin  
This is a map of 1994 vegetation size data in the Blue Waterhole Creek sub-basin, overlaid on top of KRIS sub-basins and 1:24,000 streams. The tree size classifications were derived from Landsat multi-spectral images taken in 1994. Stand conditions are accurately represented at the one hectare scale. The western and eastern parts of the watershed are in coniferous forest which shows as larger diameter trees, but a swath of grassland and oak woodlands cuts across the interior, showing as non-forest and saplings. This is likely as a result of a change in bedrock type to Central Belt Franciscan terrain. Some areas with smaller diameter tree sizes in the western portion of the basin (Saplings, Small/Trees) are in part a result of recent timber harvest. Data were provided by the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region Remote Sensing Lab, in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry.
