Graphical Representations of Tree Plot Data

Figure 1. This figure shows the average diameter in centimeters for the major tree species. It can be seen that the Tulip Poplar had the largest average diameter of 24.3 cm while the Shellbark Hickory had the smallest at 1.635 cm. It is important to note that the Chalk Maple, Yellow Birch, Red Mulberry, Slippery Elm, Sweet Gum, Big Leaf Magnolia, Red Maple, and the White Oak were excluded from this figure because only one tree was found of each species.

Figure 2. This figure displays the diameter in meters versus the height in meters. This figure shows that out of the trees that were surveyed the majority have a height less than 10 meters and a diameter of less than 0.2 meters.

Figure 3. In this figure the different species of tree found in the plot are listed as well as the number of the species that were present. This figure shows that this was a diverse plot with several different species of trees and among these species the American Beech was the most prevalent.

Tree Graphs Plot 4

Figure 4. This horizontal bar graph displays the average ages of trees (in years) grouped by species.

Tree Graphs Plot 4

Figure 5. This horizontal bar graph displays the average tree height (in feet) for each of the species within the plot. 

Tree Graphs Plot 4

Figure 6. This horizontal bar graph displays the frequency of tree species within Plot 4. It is clear from viewing this graph that the majority of trees within this plot were American Beech (Fagus grandifolia).

 

Tree Ages Plot 4 - Eli

Figure 7. This is a horizontal bar graph displaying the number of trees within Plot 4 that fall within each respective age range. It is clear that the largest frequency of trees falls between the age range of 0-10, which means that most of the trees in this plot are relatively young.
