Map: tornado damage plot locations


Locations of sampled trees for a study on the influence of tornado-damage on seedling growth. Soil samples were taken from beneath mature trees (numbered dots) of five species in both intact and tornado-damaged areas of Boggs Creek Recreation Area, Chattahoochee National Forest.  Tornado damage categories (% basal area down) are estimates based on aerial photography, used for visualization only (Peterson, Cannon and Godfrey 2015 in press). A detailed breakdown of individual tree characteristics is in a separate table.
