speciesType

Allows you to filter vine species on native, exotic or include all species.

"all"

Default. Returns all species.

"native"

Returns native species only

"exotic"

dist_m

Filter trees by a distance that is less than or equal to the specified distance in meters of the tree to the center of the plot. If no distance is specified, then all trees will be selected. For example, to select an area of trees that is 100 square meters in area, use a distance of 5.64m.
