||Land Cover: USFS Veg Size in Riparian for Inman Creek 1994
||Caption: This bar chart shows vegetation size classes in the riparian zone of the Inman Creek Calwater Planning Watershed. The riparian zone encompasses a distance of 90 meters (300 feet) on either side of the stream channel. This planning watershed had 46% of the riparian in medium-large and greater trees, 52% in small-medium and smaller trees and 2% in non-forest. While some sapling and non-forest component is owing to grassy uplands with oaks, there is also significant recent logging which contributes. The information was derived from a 1994 Landsat image by the U.S. Forest Service. This analysis technique calculates averages of vegetation stands at a one-hectare scale, and therefore is accurate at the stand rather than individual tree level.

Very Large = 40-50" DBH, Large = 30-39.9" DBH, Medium/Large = 20-29.9" DBH, Small/Medium = 12-19.9" DBH, Small = 5-11.9" DBH, Non-Forest = No trees, shrubs, grass, bare soil.
