Usage Considerations
The treatment dataset records the location and type of silviculture treatments in the forest. Sources of information include: (1) GPS collected data submitted under the Wood Acquisition Plan program. (2) Crown land silviculture data collected from various sources, including paper plans, string box and compass, aerial photography and GPS. (3) Historical pre-GPS Silvicultural features. Note that all treatments are not recorded. For example, it is known that not all treatments on private land are reported to the Wood Acquisition Plan program.
