    Description

    Crown width measurements collected during Forest Inventory and Analysis and Forest Health Monitoring surveys are being used to develop individual tree crown width models and plot-level canopy cover models for species and forest types in the Intermountain West. Several model applications are considered in the development process, including remote sensing of plot variables and stand modeling with the Forest Vegetation Simulator. The modeling process is intended to be data driven, consistent with crown architecture and stand dynamics concepts, and compatible with multiple end-user applications.
