Restoring Northern Sierra Nevada Mixed Conifer Forest Composition and Structure with Prescribed Fires of Varying Intensities
Pages: 20-33
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0202020

The effectiveness of low and high intensity prescribed fires in restoring the composition andspatial structure in a mixed conifer forest in the Northern Sierra Nevada is examined. The overstocked pre-fire stand had 480 trees ha-1, a basal area of 39.5 m² ha-1, and an inverse J shaped diameter distribution with an average dbh of 23 cm. Prescribed fires produced tree mortality in the lower and intermediate dbh-classes and affected trees up to 40 cm dbh.  [Read More]
