Document Description
The purpose of this project is to identify the locations of large trees, quantify their functional value for carbon storage and wildlife, use machine learning to model their biophysical environment and predict likely locations for large trees in the future, and use a landscape simulation model to determine the effects of treatments on the distribution of large trees across a 1 million hectare subregion and assess their variability under climate change.
