DescriptionChaparral-as the term is used in California-refers to dense stands of evergreen, shrubby vegetation. The information in this handbook applies to the chaparral within the brushland zone that lies below the State's commercial timber belt (fig. 1). This zone includes about 11 million acres of chaparral and associated types and 9 million acres of woodland types.
