GROUP: deciduous broadleaf trees (dw)
DEFINITION: deciduous woody perennial non-tree crops in a continuous regular planting pattern with spacing <5m apart and covering sufficient area to map a soft feature (width >5 m AND area >100 m2) OR with >60% vegetation cover. Must identify USE = Rainfed OR Irrigated, depending on the feature.

Classification

Return
  1. Object
    1. generic deciduous woody crop = uncommon TYPE not in classification.
    2. mixed species deciduous woody crop = mix of different deciduous woody crop species, with no species >60% by cover if mature, or by stems if immature.
    3. non-productive deciduous woody crop = any species or mix of mostly deciduous woody crops that are >60% mature (by # of stems) but have been or will be non-productive for at least two years because of old age, disease, or cutting back to regenerate.
    4. vineyard = Vitis sp.
    5. mulberry = Morus sp.
  2. Modifier 1
    1. immature = too young to produce.
    2. mature = productive
  3. Scale (of individual plots)
    1. small (<30m)
    2. medium-scale (>30m to 1ha)
    3. large-scale (>1 ha)

Dominance Rules

Return
  1. IF TYPE with greater vegetation cover area is very similar or otherwise unclear:
    1. Choose immature over mature over non-productive.
    2. Mix of deciduous tree crops and deciduous woody crops Choose deciduous tree crops> mixed species deciduous tree crop.
    3. Mix of evergreen woody crops and deciduous woody crops Choose evergreen woody crops > mixed species evergreen woody crop.
    4. Mix of evergreen tree crops and deciduous woody crops Choose evergreen tree crops > mixed species evergreen tree crop.
