Process description:
Merged with Snow Mountain aspen data. Unioned together two SM aspen layers (aspen and aspen_wallow). Neither had any information in their attribute tables except aspen_wallow had a number in Data. Dropped all SM attributes and added those from the Malheur coverage. Where aspen and aspen_wallow overlapped, deleted overlapping arcs and labels to make one polygon. SM aspen and aspen_wallow will be archived in the Emigrant archive directory in case they are needed for further work.

Overview description:
Entity and attribute overview:
Aspen (A-C) vigor codes (0-6):
0 - Layer absent - no individuals of this structure are present.
1 - Vigorous - no evidence of permanent disease (conks). Foliage disease may be present but not causing long term damage. Bark is healthy (not seriously damaged). Evidence shows very good annual leader/height growth. Minor browsing/hedging.
2 - Stable - The layer appears to be free and clear to grow. Only minor stem or leaf disease. Browsing or hedging may be checking most of annual growth. Other minor physical damage may have occurred. Only occasional cavity excavation. Growth "good-fair".
3 - Mixed condition - A significant portion of the individuals in this structural layer meet condition 1 or 2, and a significant portion meets conditions 4-6.
4 -  Declining - Shortening crown ratios. Lack of or short annual growth. Cavity excavators beginning frequent excavations. Disease conks present. Heavy browsing/hedging with reduced sprouting. Suppression or overtopping by other trees, or other physical damage causing serious injury. Occasional dead trees of this layer are present. Growth "poor".
5 - Decadent - Nearly dead. Frost cracks, broken or split out tops. Major portion of tree dead. Many cavities from bird use. Typically at least 80-90 years old at minimum. Dead trees common of same age. Growth "stopped".
6 - Dead = Dead.
