Radio pulse transmission is studied along mixed paths in a stratified forest using a stochastic radiowave propagation model. The model considers the forest as a planar stratified, anisotropic and discrete random medium which is bounded above by air and below by the ground. It consists of randomly positioned and oriented canonical scatterers which represent the principal forest constituents. Analytical results are found for sample canonical geometries in which the fields can be described in terms of ray trajectories for different propagation paths. These are then used for the numerical application of the model.
