The McArthur Creek Calwater is comprised of 45 percent in medium large and greater size class, 54 percent in small-medium and smaller size class, and 2 percent is non-forest. The U.S. Forest Service derived the information from a 1994 Landsat image. The analysis technique calculates averages of vegetation stands and is only appropriate at the stand level. Scroll down for a key to classifications. Click on Picture to see an ArcView screen print of the Calwater Planning Watershed showing vegetation types. Vegetation is classified according to diameter at breast height (DBH): Giant = >50" DBH, V Large = 40-50" DBH, Large = 30-39.9" DBH, Medium/Large = 20-29.9" DBH, Small/Medium = 12-19.9" DBH, Small = 5-11.9" DBH, Non-Forest = No trees, shrubs, grass, bare soil.
