Layer: Potential Forest Block (ID: 7)

Parent Layer: Forest Block Opportunities

Name: Potential Forest Block

Display Field:

Type: Raster Layer

Geometry Type: null

Description: 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), within Mississippi River Basin large river bottomlands. An existing forest patch contains at least 10 acres of interior forest (at least 100 meters from forest edge) while lands suitable for afforestation are croplands on marginal or wet soils, or herbaceous/scrub-shrub lands at least 1 acre in size (NLCD - 2011/Cropland Data Layer - 2013).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 could create greater ecological and environmental benefits. This dataset is an excerpt of "Potential Bottomland Forest Blocks (All)" optimized for restoration potential, and contains only those Potential Forest Blocks containing between 30% - 85% of their total area as Existing Forest Patches.
