Stereo Photo Series for Quantifying Forest Residues Oregon Coastal Forests: Second-Growth Douglas-Fir--Western Hemlock Type, Western Hemlock--Sitka Spruce Type, and Red Alder Type

A series of photographs displays a range of residue loadings for clearcut units in these general forest types common to coastal Oregon forest lands: Douglas-fir--western hemlock (second growth), western hemlock--Sitka spruce, and red alder. Postburn residue levles are also represented for the Douglas-fir--western hemlock, and red alder types. Information with each photo includes mesaured quadratic means and weights for various size classes, woody fuel depth, and duff depth. The stereo photo series is designed to help forst manager appraise woody residue after both timber harvest and treatment with fire in forest types not previously represented by a photo series.
