 You selected the area Coastal Tributaries South and the topic Land Cover: USFS Veg Size in Riparian for Point Arena Creek 1994  
This is a map of vegetation size data within 90-meter riparian buffer zones in the Point Arena Creek Calwater Planning Watershed, overlaid on top of KRIS sub-basins, and a Grayscale Hillshade. The tree size classifications were derived from Landsat multi-spectral images taken in 1994. Stand conditions are accurately represented at the one hectare scale. Note that Schooner Gulch has excellent riparian conditions. The northwestern coastal plain is a flat area shows as non-forest on this map and is mostly covered by grasslands, hay, and other agricultural lands. While there are more medium/large and larger trees in the riparian zone of this sub-basin than the rest of the project area, there are still significant areas of early seral stage conditions in much of the riparian zones in the sub-basin, which may reflect 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. Available layers include Vegetation Size, Topographic Map, and Change in Vegetation (1994-1998). Scale = 1:106,088 .
