 1. __Establish the Plot Size__: Woody species utilization is measured within a 1 m zone extending from the greenline on each streambank. ​ The woody species zone is divided into quadrats, the length of which is determined by the size of the study area and the needs of the researcher.  ​ 1. __Establish the Plot Size__: Woody species utilization is measured within a 1 m zone extending from the greenline on each streambank. ​ The woody species zone is divided into quadrats, the length of which is determined by the size of the study area and the needs of the researcher.  ​

 **The length of the woody species use plot is the distance between quadrats. ​ Select the first woody plant (A) within the plot and determine the utilization on that plant. This is repeated for each key woody species (B and C) within the plot. A 2-m measuring rod centered on the greenline is often used to locate plants within the plot. The monitoring frame has a 1-m-long handle, which may also be used to determine if individual woody plants are rooted within the plot.** **The length of the woody species use plot is the distance between quadrats. ​ Select the first woody plant (A) within the plot and determine the utilization on that plant.
