 You selected the area Coastal Tributaries North and the topic Land Cover: USFS Veg Size for North Fork Alder Creek 1994  
This is a map of 1994 vegetation size data in the North Fork Alder Creek Calwater Planning Watershed, 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 small diameter tree size indicates early seral stage conditions in much of the sub-basin, reflecting timber harvest in the last several decades. The western coastal plain is a flat area mostly covered by grasslands, hay, and other agricultural lands. Data were provided by the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region Remote Sensing Lab, in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry.
