Landsat Monitors 1,800-Year-Old Redwoods

Detailed Description

These Landsat images show logging’s influence around the dark green protected forests. Many of the small pink spots in the lower left corner and across the right side of the 1984 scene are logging sites revealed through Landsat 5’s Thematic Mapper sensor. In the 2016 Landsat 8 image, logging seems to have lessened overall, particularly as areas on the right side of the scene experience regrowth.
