Description: In this study, the following questions were investigated:
1) Is there a relationship between measurements of basal area increment and vegetation indices derived from Landsat 5 TM data the same year 1984-2010?
2) If these relationships exist, are they stronger for certain vegetation indices, species types, or particular locations?
3) Is there some combination of multiple vegetation indices that can be used to model BAI across the landscape? To answer these questions, we analyzed tree growth for dominant species in Northern Vermont and New Hampshire.
