The image above shows USFS vegetation stand types for the riparian zone of the Little Creek Calwater planning watershed based on a 1994 Landsat image. The stand types are only accurate at the one-hectare scale and the buffer width is 90 meters. The riparian along the mainstem of lower Buckeye Creek has some patches of Medium/Large Trees (20-29.9" diameter) but mostly it is dominated by smaller diameter trees and even has some Non-Forest component. Early seral condition of riparian zones reflects in part recent timber harvests. See Info Links for more information. Taken from the KRIS Gualala Map project.
