Electric utilities in the US have initiated forestry projects to conserve energy and to o€set carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. In 1995, 40 companies raised US$2.5 million to establish the non-pro®t UtiliTree Carbon Company which is now sponsoring eight projects representing a mix of rural tree planting, forest preservation, forest management and research e€orts at both domestic (Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon) and international sites (Belize and Malaysia). The projects include extensive external veri®cation. Such forestry projects Ð properly documented, monitored and veri®ed Ð should be a component of domestic and international strategies to address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, due to GHG bene®ts,...

A species has been applied to each hectare based on the 6 species fields in the raw data and the percentage of each species within a given polygon. For example a hectare which is 75% Pine and 25% Cedar has a 25% chance of being flagged as ''Cedar'' and 75% chance of being flagged as ''Pine''. A code describing the commercial species or brush species in the layer. Species must be above a specified diameter to be recognized in the species composition of the layer. Leading species are described in terms of Genus, Species and Subspecies. There are currently 27 commercial tree species and five genus values recognized in the Province. The code may also used to describe brush species in cases where the Non-Productive Descriptor...

Forest cover types (deciduous forest (41), evergreen forest (42), mixed forest (43), shrub/scrub (52), woody wetland (90)) were isolated from the 2001 National Land Cover Dataset (1 = forest, 0 = non-forest). To improve processing time of running a large focal mean across an expansive region, the “aggregate” tool was applied to the forest grid and re-sampled the 30 m pixels to 90 m using the mean aggregate option (i.e., the result is new 90 m pixels representing the proportion of forest in 9 pixels). A 10 km circular focal mean was applied to the aggregated grid resulting in a new floating point raster containing the proportion of forest within 10 km of each 90 m pixel. These values were multiplied by 100, rounded...

This dataset represents presence of white pine (Pinus strobus) at year 100 (2095) from a single model run of LANDIS-II. The simulation assumed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) B2 emissions (moderate) and used the Hadley 3 global circulation model. Contemporary harvest rates and intensities were simulated.

A nationally compiled dataset containing provincial Forest Tenures/Forest Management Areas and other administrative areas where rights to establish, grow, harvest or remove timber from a particular area of land has been granted. Each province has different boundary definitions and/or harvesting practices which prevents this dataset from having a standard defined tenure unit for all of Canada (See data sources in metadata). British Columbia was the only province where tenure boundaries had to be complied from several different sources in order to have a definable tenure unit comparable to other provinces (see NOTES in metadata).

This dataset displays the boundaries of Intact Forest Landscapes for the Kenai region of the state of Alaska. Intact Forest Landscapes are defined as areas at least 50,000 hectares that are absent of human disturbance visible on satellite imagery (e.g., roads, logging, mining, settlement). For more information, see the full report, available on the Global Forest Watch website (www.globalforestwatch.org), or the Conservation Biology Institute website (http://www.consbio.org/cbi/projects/show.php?page=alaska);.

This dataset contains all National Forest Inventoried Roadless Areas (IRAs) for the Alaska Region (R10). The IRA data was originally submitted to GSTC by all national forests through their Regional Offices for the Forest Service's Roadless Area Conservation Initiative. The data was consolidated at the GSTC and used in the Draft Environment Impact Statement. Between the draft and final stages of the Environmental Impact Statement, the data was updated by the forests to reflect any corrections to Inventoried Roadless Areas that were based on their existing forest plan. The data was also supplemented to include Special Designated Area information and to include Inventoried Roadless Areas within Special Designated...

Forest Retention Index classes for the southeastern United States at 2040 were processed using the Forest Retention Decision Tree and rendered on a 30-meter by 30-meter grid. The Forest Retention Index is used only for current forestland, identified using National Land Cover Database 2011. Many datasets were used as inputs for the Forest Retention Decision Tree, and they can be grouped into five broad categories: Protected, Tier 1 Priority, Tier 2 Priority, Threats to Forest Retention, and Socio-Economic Value of Forests. Protected datasets include Protected Areas Database-United States, National Conservation Easement Database, state-maintained databases, and private datasets volunteered by conservation partners....

The balance between economic needs and natural resource conservation will become more tenuous in the future as a result of a myriad of environmental stressors. We propose a methodology that can help guide forest management practices whenever adequate species locational data and quality forest or land use data exist. More specifically, the results of this study can be used to evaluate alternative land and silviculture management scenarios in terms of creating or maintaining high-quality forest habitat for a specific species. We used data collected on radiotelemetered black bears from 1988 to 2015 to develop a regional habitat model throughout Louisiana and Arkansas using Mahalanobis distance (D2) statistic. We created...

This data represents an assessment of forest composition used in the ecological assessment of upland hardwood systems by the GCPO LCC. We used a combination of remote sensing products including 2011 National Land Cover Database (NLCD) forest classes and the 2011 MAV forest classification layer produced by the Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture to delineate patches of all forest types in the GCPO LCC. We used NLCD as the primary data source when assessing forests outside the GCPO LCC MAV subgeography, and the LMVJV forest classification as the primary data source for forest assessment within the MAV. NLCD was developed using 2011 Landsat TM imagery, with forest classes including only areas with trees exceeding...

Synopsis: Using multi-scale seasonal models, this study explored how broad scale landscape context and local resource heterogeneity influenced local resource selection among threatened forest-dwelling woodland caribou in southern Quebec. Caribou consistently avoided roads, however researchers identified thresholds in road proximity effects. The threshold distance at which caribou avoid roads is 1.25 km for active roads and 0.75 km from derelict roads. Open lichen woodlands were an important cover type for caribou during winter and spring, whereas deciduous forests, wetlands, and even young disturbed stands became important during calving and summer. Landscape cover type and amount explained more variation in habitat...
