Description: Data collected in conjunction with the multiresource inventory of southeast Alaska in 1985-86 included downed wood along 234 transects at 60 locations. Transects occurred in 11 forest types and 19 plant associations within the entire southeastern Alaska archipelago. Downed wood weights in forest types ranged from 1232 kilograms per hectare (0.6 ton per acre) in muskeg (shore pine) stands to 117 483 kilograms per hectare (52.4 tons per acre) in western redcedar stands. In plant association terminology, downed wood weights ranged from 3115 kilograms per hectare (1.4 tons per acre) in the shore pine/crowberry association to 156 083 kilograms per hectare (69.6 tons per acre) in western hemlock/blueberry associations.

Keywords: Forest biomass, downed woody fuels, coarse woody debris, Alaska
