 To view a more detailed version of this map click here
This is a map of 1999 USFS Landsat-based vegetation size data for the Elk River sub-basin. The vegetation classification is accurate at a one-hectare scale (approximately 11 pixels) and is suitable for stand classification. Most of the area in this sub-basin is forest or actively harvested forest, from saplings to large trees. Headwaters Forest can be seen to the southeast, with purple representing very large and giant trees. Some non-forest land (agricultural) lies to the west. Data provided by the U.S. Forest Service Spatial Analysis Lab in Sacramento, CA.
