Abstract:
This database contains vegetation information for both forested and non-forested areas. For forested areas this includes tree species, height, age, crown density, and site. For non-forested areas it includes hydrology, wetlands, barren, scrub, cleared areas, and residential. This database is currently available for approximately 85% of the island of Newfoundland (generally the south coast is not available) and 30% of Labrador (generally the north is not available). The forest inventory database is used by the department, pulp and paper companies, and the sawmill industry to manage the forests of the province in a sustainable manner.
