Abstract

A digital database of witness tree locations has been created from the earliest deeds of the area now within the Monongahela National Forest. These locations were used to describe the distribution, environmental gradients, and associated tree species of red spruce (Picea rubens) in eastern West Virginia from between 1771 and 1889.
