DescriptionTwenty-five series of photographs display different levels of natural forest residue loadings by size classes for areas of like vegetation in the Pacific Northwest. Information with each photo includes measured weights, volumes, and other data on residues, information about live vegetation, and fuel ratings.
These photo series provide a fast, easy-to-use way to quantify and describe existing and desired residues.
