Area Lower Klamath/Basin-wide
Topic VegType: Hunter Creek Watershed 1994
Caption:  The chart above shows vegetation types and timber size classes of the Hunter Creek watershed as derived from a 1994 Landsat image. The Landsat image was classified using the WHR method by the Humboldt State University Spatial Analysis Laboratory then modified for use in KRIS (see Info Links). The large amount of shrub component in Hunter Creek is owing to extensive timber harvest and a 1988 forest fire. The meadow/marsh areas are in lower Hunter Creek adjacent to the Klamath estuary. Regeneration of conifers in large areas of Hunter Creek and Terwer Creek is not occurring. Classes can be viewed below: Very Large Trees = 36" in diameter or greater Large Trees = 24-36" in diameter Medium Trees = 11-24" in diameter Small Trees = 6-11" in diameter Small Trees/Shrubs = Trees 1-6" in diameter and shrubs Shrubs Grass Rock/Soil Marsh/Meadow
