Watershed Restoration Stewardship

Monitoring Methods

Our team records information for many different variables on each tree we monitor. This information helps us to determine how successful the implementation of these restoration sites has been. For instance, if many of the plants are shown to have low vigor, our data can point to the source of the problem.

Along side the picture of the Douglas fir sapling, you will see examples of the characteristics that we measure in the field. Click on each characteristic to get a more in-depth description.
