Plain Language Summary

Access to image data collected by the Landsat series of satellites has improved Canada’s ability to observe, track and study forest disturbances such as wildfires and insect infestations, and how quickly forests grow back after these disturbances. This poster shows how forest recovery is a continuous process that ultimately returns most disturbed lands to forest over time.
