Abstract The ecological importance of small patches of remnant woody vegetation is increasingly being recognised in terms of the ecosystem services they provide. Consequently, there is a growing need to map and monitor these keystone ecological structures. In this context remote sensing technologies, due to their spatial coverage and synoptic view of landscape structure, are commonly utilised to provide assessments of woody vegetation extent. This paper presents a case study which compares two commonly used forest resource inventories; the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency's National Carbon Accounting Scheme (NCAS) and the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment's (DSE) 1:25000 Tree Cover data product.
