-The Cover Board Method is used to evaluate vertical cover and vegetation structure over time.  It requires a profile board or density board to estimate the vertical area of a board covered by vegetation from a specified distance away. +The Cover Board Method is used to evaluate vertical cover and vegetation structure over time.  It requires a profile board or density board to estimate the vertical area of a board covered by vegetation from a specified distance away.  Many different types of boards have been developed. ​ While they vary in dimensions they are generally narrow boards with bands of alternating colors that define vertical bands
  
 This method is applicable to a wide variety of vegetation types and is particularly useful when used with those vegetation types that show potential for changes, such as woody riparian vegetation. This method is applicable to a wide variety of vegetation types and is particularly useful when used with those vegetation types that show potential for changes, such as woody riparian vegetation.
