Partial Harvest Mapping Project

We collected field and photo data to support an effort to map partial harvests in central Washington. This project complemented previous and ongoing work to map stand-replacing harvests and fires in the Pacific Northwest. Our goal was to estimate change in forest cover as a continuous variable for two focus areas identified as critical by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW). We also provided estimates of the loss of biomass associated with detected partial harvests. This project was funded by the Washington DNR and DFW.
