Summary

Basal area is a measure of the cross-sectional area of trees calculated by multiplying the foresters’ constant (0.005454) by the squared diameter of each tree to determine a measure of tree area (ft2 or m2) per unit area (acre or ha). Similar to an assessment of forest canopy cover, basal area provides a measure of horizontal structure, and is closely associated with measures of vertical structure. When assessing condition of upland hardwood woodland and forest systems, the GCPO LCC Integrated Science Agenda targets a large proportion of the basal area in those systems to be composed of oak and hickory species. This endpoint targets >90% of basal area as oak and hickory for upland hardwood woodland systems and >70% for upland hardwood [...]

Purpose

We used plot-level imputed data from the FIA program at 250 m resolution to assess the proportion of total live tree basal area composed of oak and hickory species and total live tree basal area in the GCPO as part of the rapid ecological assessment of upland hardwood systems.

Rights

No liability is to be assumed by the Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks Landscape Conservation Cooperative or any of its partners for the use or misuse of this data. Data is to be considered preliminary, pending comprehensive review, and assumed to be current and accurate at time of release.
