Caption: The Chart Table veg_usfs_garcia.dbf shows, for each Calwater Planning Watershed of the Garcia River basin, percentages of vegetation in various size classes derived from an analysis performed by the U.S. Forest Service in co-operation with the California Department of Forestry (see InfoLinks for more details). The coverage is based on 1994 Landsat imagery. Extensive ground truthing was conducted to assure accuracy. 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. Six classes of vegetation based on tree diameter were selected and summed at the Calwater Planning Watershed level for use in KRIS projects. Vegetation is classified according to diameter at breast height (DBH): 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, Saplings = 1-4.9" , Non-Forest = No trees, shrubs, grass, bare soil. A Key to the other column headings (abbreviations for Calwater Planning Watersheds): MALL_PASS= Mallo Pass Creek, LWR_ALDER = Lower Alder Creek, NF_ALDR_CK= North Fork Alder Creek, LWR_BRUSH = Lower Brush Creek, UPR_BRUSH = Upper Brush Creek, LAMOUR_CK = Lamour Creek, VICTOR_FK = Victoria Fork, HATHAWAY = Hathaway Creek, NFK_GARCIA = North Fork Garcia River, LITTLE_PEN = Little Penney, PT_ARENA = Point Arena Creek, PARDALOE = Pardaloe Creek, ROLLING_BK = Rolling Brook, E_EUREKA_H = East of Eureka Hill, INMAN_CK = Inman Creek, N_GUAL_MTN = North of Gualala Mtn, SIGNAL_CK = Signal Creek, SF_GARCIA = South Fork Garcia River, ROSEMAN_CK = Roseman Creek.
