This dataset is an extract from a national (U.S.) forest canopy base height dataset created by the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Project (LANDFIRE). It only contains data for the areas within the Colorado Basin, Arizona/New Mexico Basin, and Sonoran Desert eco-regions. From LANDFIRE: The LANDFIRE fuel data describe the composition and characteristics of both surface fuel and canopy fuel. Specific products include fire behavior fuel models, canopy bulk density (CBD), canopy base height (CBH), canopy cover (CC), canopy height (CH), and fuel loading models (FLMs). These data may be implemented within models to predict the behavior and effects of wildland fire. These data are useful for strategic fuel treatment [...]
