Summary

These data sets are in the form of Quattro Pro spreadsheets describing herb an shrub cover collected at study plots. Data was collected from 1993-1995 primarily on BLM lands to compare past thinnings (10-25 years old) to immediately adjacent unthinned stands and nearby old-growth where available. Data is focused on overstory trees, saplings, seedlings, shrubs and herbaceous plant cover in the various stand types.

Purpose

The BLM was interested in whether thinning was an effective tool in creating old-growth-type stand conditions - which stand characteristics, how fast, and which qualities in the thinnings appear to be most effective. This retrospective analysis would help guide new experimental thinnings being planned.
