Alameda County, California
Forest Cover Types:
Forests of heavily branched, dwarfed trees or shrubs, usually evergreen, the crown canopy of which at maturity covers more than 50 percent of the ground and whose primary value is watershed protection. The more common chaparral constituents are species of Quercus, Cercocarpus, Garrya, Ceanothus, Arctostaphylos, and Adenostoma. Types dominated by such shrubs as Artemisia, Chrysothamnus, Purshia, Gutierrezia, or semidesert species are not commonly considered chaparral.
Forests in which aspen, red alder, or other western hardwoods, singly or in combination, comprise a plurality of the stocking.
