PROJECT DESCRIPTION

(1991-06-26 - 1995-12-30) To assess changes in forest canopy health over time by the use of canopy photography. Establish an archivable image of stand condition to use as a baseline for future comparisons. Since a baseline has been created in past years, photography will be taken only if other surveys indicate tree stress or damage is occuring, and results will be compared to baseline established.
