ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that deals with a spatial assessment of present and future growth patterns of hardwood in the Northern Sacramento Valley, California. Using a geographical information system technology, the Northern Sacramento Valley Sustainable Landscapes Project aims to develop an acceptable framework for discussing issues related to sustainability. The potential uses of the growth projections include improved ability to assess the changes in the oak woodland landscape on a comparative basis and new thematic digital map layers.
