Measurements of basal area, density of stems, and canopy height were made on a total of 53 nest sites of downy (Dendrocopos pubescens), hairy (D. villosus), and pileated (Dryocopus pileatus) woodpeckers, and the common flicker (Colaptes auratus). Two-group discriminant function analyses were calculated for each species using measurements of plots located randomly in a spectrum of selected habitat types in the study area. The analyses are discussed as possible aids in land management decisions and in management of endangered species. Forest Sci. 22:122-127.
