Data were provided by the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest research program, funded by the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Program (DEB 2025755), US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, and Oregon State University.
While substantial efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of data and documentation, complete accuracy of data sets cannot be guaranteed. All data are made available "as is". The Andrews LTER shall not be liable for damages resulting from any use or misinterpretation of data sets.
The primary objective of this study is to predict the volume of the tree bole that is left on the site during a harvest operation. This data is needed to predict the amount of woody detritus left on a site after harvest. This in turn is used to predict how carbon stores change during succession.
