Layer: Potential Bottomland Forest Blocks (All) (ID: 0)

Name: Potential Bottomland Forest Blocks (All)

Display Field: OBJECTID

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Contains all potential forest blocks (PFB) regardless of amount of existing forest within Mississippi River Basin large river bottomlands. A potential forest block contains at least 100 acres of existing forest patches along with lands suitable for afforestation contiguous to these existing forest patches that, when combined, is at least 500 acres in size and contains at least 100 acres of interior area (at least 100 meters from forest edge).As initially identified, potential forest blocks can contain so little existing forest so as to render restoration infeasible or, so much existing forest so as to render restoration less necessary than other potential forest blocks where increasing the amount of forest would create greater ecological and environmental benefits. Thus, all of these potential forest blocks were classified according to restoration opportunity: Blocks considered most suitable for restoration (include at least 30% but no more than 85% of their total area as Existing Forest Patches (EFP) are identified as Type 1. PFB with less than 30% EFP are considered the least restorable because they would require substantial afforestation to reach full size, are identified as Type 2. Type 3 PFB already contain such a large EFP area (>85%) that additional restoration may not provide as much ecological or environmental benefit as would occur in Type 1 PFB. However, this depends on the context of the opportunities and in some instances restoration within Type 3PFB could provide significant benefit. Furthermore, as some of the Type 3 PFB can be quite large, there may still be substantial afforestation opportunities ranging from the hundreds to thousands of acres in these blocks, thus these Type 3 features should not be totally excluded from consideration as potential opportunities for restoration.
