Summary

Included in this final report are thirteen desired forest condition metrics, subdivided into sets of metrics for the condition of the canopy, midstory and ground layer (the full metrics are found in Appendix C, this document). These metrics can be applied to any of seven broad ecosystems we are calling “Southern Open Pine Groupings” (Appendix B). These are stand level metrics, and generally can be applied at sets of points or small plots across stands, in a manner similar to a timber cruise. These metrics are an important new tool that is intended for use by conservation-focused landowners and managers to evaluate the wildlife habitat value and ecological integrity of southern open pine ecosystems that they own and manage.
