Data Extent

Data from: Forest harvest dataset for northern Colorado Rocky Mountains (1984–2015) generated from a Landsat time series and existing forest harvest records

This dataset provides a shapefile containing approximately 3500 polygons with the location, extent, size, and year of clearcut harvest events occurring between 1984 and 2015 in forested areas of the northern Colorado, Landsat WRS-2 scene Path 034, Row 032. Harvest events were modeled and mapped using a 32 year time series of Landsat imagery, the LandTrendr algorithm, and ancillary datasets. The dataset also conveys information on the elevation, aspect, ownership, distance to roads, and the watershed where each harvest event occurred. Supplementary material contains zipped shapefile data for download.

Intended Use
Dataset serves to: clearly characterize the extent and year of clearcut harvests in the Rocky Mountains of northern Colorado and southern Wyoming; identify the age and management history of forest stands to relate to forest function and to interactions with other disturbances like fire and bark beetle outbreaks; support the analysis of forest management trends over the last 30 years and connections with policy or disturbance events; and contribute to further study of forest carbon dynamics, forest regeneration processes, and ecological comparisons of harvested versus unharvested systems.
