    Description

    A method for analyzing and mapping forest parcel sizes in the Northeastern United States is presented. A decision tree model was created that predicts forest parcel size from spatially explicit predictor variables: population density, State, percentage forest land cover, and road density. The model correctly predicted parcel size for 60 percent of the observations in a validation data set (weighted kappa = 0.45). This decision tree model was used to create a map representing the average forest parcel size across the region.
