GROUP: deciduous forestry plantings (pd)
DEFINITION: immature deciduous forestry tree plantings (<60% tree cover). Small to medium trees (<10 cm) DBH planted 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). Other ground cover may include annual or woody unmanaged vegetation. USE = Forestry.

Return
  1. generic evergreen forestry plantings
    1. wide linear = pe01
    2. small patch = pe02
    3. mixed = pe03

Dominance Rules

Return
  1. IF TYPE with greater vegetation cover area is very similar or otherwise unclear:
    1. Choose evergreen forestry plantings over deciduous forestry plantings.
  2. IF Forestry planting area includes both mature (en01/eb01) and immature evergreen needleleaf/broadleaf trees, AND it is unclear whether mature or immature area is greater:
    1. Choose the appropriate mature tree GROUP (en01 or eb01).
