Topic VegType: Camp Creek Watershed 1994
Caption:  The chart above shows vegetation types and timber size classes by acre of the Camp 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 high small tree component in Camp Creek is in part a result of serpentine soils in the upper watershed that result in stunted vegetation. Many timber harvests in the 1960's and 1970's in Bluff Creek have not shown vigorous growth, possibly because of constraining soil types. This adds to the small tree component. Classes are listed 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.
