If someone could clarify this for me, that would be super awesome.

I have recently just buffered a stream to 100m. This is the area that i'm interested in. I'm looking to see what the area of logging are within the stream buffered area. My question is When I clip the the logging polygon within the stream buff, do i need to dissolve the streambuff feature into one singe feature? Will it make a difference if i just simply clip the polygon within the stream buffered area when they are in multilple little single pieces ?

Thanks in advance
