Topic Woody Debris: LWD Occurrence in Five Gualala Tributaries
Caption:  The Chart above shows that all stream reaches surveyed by Coastal Forestlands in 1997 except Fuller Creek are deficient with regard to large woody debris when compared to targets from old growth forests in Washington Timber, Fish and Wildlife (TFW) targets. The Assessment of Aquatic Conditions in the Mendocino Coast Hydrologic Unit (CWRCB, 2001) ascribes the lack of wood to historic and recent riparian timber harvest and points out that TFW targets are from Douglas fir forests and likely lower than those for redwood.
