Social conditions, conflict, and preference data for users in the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area in 1994

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
The data available here highlight visitor preferences for naturalness and social conditions for their visitor experience in the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area (RNRA) and Wilderness in Montana. Mountain bikers and hikers in the RNRA were surveyed in 1994 to measure conflict between various user groups visiting the RNRA.

Data product containing tree heights, survival, and genetic variation for "Genetic Variation in Ponderosa Pine: A 15-year Test of Provenances in the Great Plains"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Seeds from 79 natural stands throughout the ponderosa pine range, both east and west of the Continental Divide, were sown and grown in a nursery for three to four years in the 1960's. These seeds were then distributed to plantations, mostly in the Great Plains. This dataset contains the height of the surviving trees after 15 years for 14 plantations.

Data product containing 22-year Nebraska tree heights, survival, and genetic variation for "Ten-Year Performance of Ponderosa Pine Provenances in the Great Plains of North America"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Seeds from 79 natural stands throughout the ponderosa pine range, both east and west of the Continental Divide, were sown and grown in a nursery for three to four years in the 1960's. Some of these seeds were then distributed to three different field plantations in Alliance, Hastings, and Plattsmouth Nebraska. These datasets contain individual tree heights of surviving trees, taken at various frequencies from 1968 to 1987.

Data product containing campsite assessments for "Effectiveness of a Confinement Strategy in Reducing Pack Stock Impacts at Campsites in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, Idaho"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Measurements of ground cover conditions, tree impacts, and campsite conditions were taken in the Seven Lakes Basin in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness between 1993 and 1998 in order to assess bringing high levels of campsite impact into compliance with management standards.

Data product containing 20-year tree heights, diameters, and genetic variation for "Scots Pine in Eastern Nebraska: A Provenance Study"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Seedling progenies of 36 rangewide provenances of Scots Pine (Pinus sylvetris) were established in a field test at Horning State Farm experimental area near Plattsmouth, Nebraska in April of 1962. Tree heights were measured at the end of each growing season from 1963 through 1969, and again in 1971. Tree height and diameter at breast height were both measured at the end of the growing season in 1976, 1978, 1979, and 1981.

IW-FIA Predicted Forest Attribute Maps - 2005

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Program predicted forest attributes and maps created in 2005 for the Interior West (IW) FIA region. Data include maps and modeling results of several forest attributes based on FIA plot data and geospatial predictor layers.

Field plot measures and predictive map products for "Regression modeling and mapping of coniferous forest basal area and tree density from discrete-return lidar and multispectral satellite data"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains lidar, advanced land imagery, geographic and tree data for 26 different predictor variables used in the modeling and mapping of basal area and tree density across two diverse coniferous forest landscapes in north-central Idaho. It also contains the Arc/INFO GRID raster format 30-meter-resolution maps for both study areas showing predicted basal area and tree density.

Field plot measures and predictive map products for "Nearest neighbor imputation of species-level, plot-scale forest structure attributes from LiDAR data"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains LiDAR data (for predictor variables) and plot tree data (for response variables) used in the modeling and mapping of species-level basal area and tree density across two diverse coniferous forest landscapes in north-central Idaho.It also contains the Arc/INFO GRID raster maps for both study areas showing predicted species-level basal area and tree density.

Campsite condition data for the Miller Peak Wilderness

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains baseline (2008) campsite conditions for all 44 campsites found along all trails other than the Sunnyside Canyon Trail in the Miller Peak Wilderness in Arizona. Measurements include basic campsite information such as groundcover disturbance, impact to standing trees and roots, and size of disturbed area.

Tenderfoot Creek Research Project seedling, sapling and variable radius plot tree data

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
This data publication contains seedling density, sapling density and variable plot radius tree data associated with the Tenderfoot Creek Research Project sampled between 1997 and 2007. Experimental shelterwood harvests combined with prescribed burning were implemented in the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest between 1999 and 2003. These data contain pre- and post-treatment data.
