    Description

    This paper compares stand characteristics of Old Growth coastal redwood stand densities and forest structure found throughout the northern tier of the range of coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens). Tree densities are relatively low compared to commercially managed stands of coast redwood. Tree size classes distributions vary from <5cm to >254cm (2" dbh to >100��). Dominant tree species include tanoak (Lithocarpus multiflora), Douglas-fir (Psuedotsuga menzisii) and Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens). Snag densities are given for a stand of old-growth redwoods in Mendocino County.
