Author: John C. Almendinger, Ecological Land Classification Program, DNR Forestry, Resource Assessment Office
Description: This Excel workbook contains a table that summarizes the historic loss of abundance and acreage of forests with white pine trees.

Loss was calculated for each ECS land type association (LTA) for
Also included are some LTA attributes useful in making maps
The initial sheet "Sumtable for LTA Join" is the table in its raw form that can be exported as a *.dbf file for joining to the DNR's ArcView cover of LTAs. This is done for the purpose of making maps or allowing local analysis. The second sheet "Sumtable for Looking" is the table organized in a way that places related fields (variables) next to each other. The final row of this table contains descriptions of the fields.
