Attributing Landbase Change: How Changes in the Landbase Affect Habitat Elements
In this section we evaluate how landbase changes (e.g. new forestry footprint, fire) from 2010-2018 in Norbord's operating areas are predicted to affect abundance of habitat elements, such as vegetation cover and large trees.
In this section, we provide summaries of the overall predicted change in habitat elements to different types of change on the landbase, including changes as a result of forestry (new and old), non-forestry footprint (new and old), fire, and aging of undisturbed stands. In this section, we present roll-up figures for all habitat elements showing the effects of:
- New versus regenerating old forestry;
- Fires versus aging undisturbed stands;
- Net human footprint versus net natural changes.
Details for calculating attribution can be found in the Methods.
