Title: Stereo photo guide for estimating canopy fuel characteristics in conifer stands

Author: Scott, Joe H.; Reinhardt, Elizabeth D.;

Date: 2005

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. RMRS-GTR-145. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 49 p. plus stereoscope (available only with paper copy).

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Stereo photographs, hemispherical photographs, and stand data are presented with associated biomass and canopy fuel characteristics for five Interior West conifer stands. Canopy bulk density, canopy base height, canopy biomass by component, available canopy fuel load, and vertical distribution of canopy fuel are presented for each plot at several stages of sampling, each corresponding to a level of simulated low thinning (100, 75, 50, and 25 percent of the initial basal area). This guide will help fuel managers estimate canopy fuel characteristics in similar forest conditions.

Keywords: canopy bulk density, canopy biomass, canopy base height, ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, Sierra Nevada mixed conifer
