Short woody plants
Short woody plants is a general cover category consisting of short woody canopy cover of greater than 25 percent, while with tall woody plants the canopy cover is less than 25 percent. They occupy the Tree Family Shrubicacae. Short woody plants are less than 4 meters (about 13 feet) tall and often multi-stemmed, e.g., shrubs and seedlings. The distinction between tall (>4m) and short (<4m) is made according to current conditions, not potential.
