Note: The 1st number (or the only number) in a cell is the # of protected areas (PAs) with >10 ha cumulative crown cover (CC); the 2nd number is the # of additional PAs with > 2.5 ha CC; and the 3rd number is the # of populations in storage at the BC Tree Seed Centre. The last two numbers are only presented if the first number is <3.
