Abstract
  • A classification of forest vegetation is presented for the Mt. Baker-snoqualmie Forest. It is based on the potential National vegetation and uses the plant association as the basic unit. The classification is based on 2464 sample plots distributed across the Forest from 1979 to 1990. Of these 1963 were in late successional stands over 150 years old. An additional 633 plots were taken in non-forest communities or undescribed plant associations. The hierarchical classification includes 4 forest series, 19 plant association groups, and 60 plant associations. Diagnostic keys are presented to aid in the identification of vegetation series and plant associations. Descriptions are presented for each series and association. Plant association descriptions include information about plant species occurrences, distribution, environment and soils, potential timber productivity, management considerations, and comparisons with similar plant associations. Key words: vegetation classification, climax plant communities, potential vegetation, plant association, vegetation series, forest ecology, forest environment, Cascade Mountains.
