This dataset was created to support spatial analyses of forest harvest areas in the Upper North Saskatchewan and Upper Red Deer River Basins for the Alberta Environment and Parks report entitled “Ecological response to land use and human activities in the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains: A scientific assessment”. This is a polygon dataset covering the Upper North Saskatchewan and upper Red Deer River Basins of Alberta, Canada for the period 1961-2016. This dataset of forest harvest areas was created using three data sources obtained from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry: The AVI (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 2017a), the Post Inventory Final Cutblocks layer (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 2017b), and Regional Forestry Cultblock data (obtained directly from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, March 2018).

These included: the AVI (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 2017a), the Post Inventory Final Cutblocks layer (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 2017b) and Regional Forestry Cutblock data (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, March 2018). For further details see “Ecological response to land use and human activities in the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains: A scientific assessment”. processStep: LI_ProcessStep: description: This dataset of forest harvest areas was created using three data sources obtained by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry; the AVI (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 2017a), the Post Inventory Final Cutblocks layer (Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, 2017b) and Regional Forestry Cutblock data (obtained Alberta Agriculture and Forestry on March 9, 2018). To calculate the total forest harvest areas in the study area since 1961 we created a compiled Forest Harvest Areas dataset. First, the three datasets were clipped to the study area boundary. All cutblock records were extracted from the AVIE dataset by selecting any records with a modification code of ‘CC’ for clear cut. Both the Regional Forestry Cutblock dataset and the Post Inventory Final Cutblocks dataset had an attribute field called Harvest Year which represents the date of harvest. For extracted records from the AVIE dataset, the Harvest Year was calculated as the modification year. Where no date was available in the modification year the Harvest Year was calculated as the origin year, where origin year >= 1980. Else the Harvest Year was calculated as the understory origin year. For the records where the origin year was <1980 and no understory origin year was recorded, the Harvest year was calculated as the Photography year if the Seral stage was either Regen or Young, else it was calculated as Origin year. A source field was added to each of the three datasets, and calculated as the name of the dataset. The three forest harvest inventories were then merged, keeping only the Source and Harvest Year fields. The final step in creating this compiled Forest Harvest dataset was to remove any records older than 1961, and to dissolve by both Source and Age fields.For further details see “Ecological response to land use and human activities in the eastern slopes of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains: A scientific assessment”.
