The Relation Between Tree Size and Mortality Caused by Fire in Southern Appalachian Hardwoods

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Forest fires seldom completely destroy hardwood stands in the Southern Appalachian region. Ordinarily a fire results in high mortality in the smaller diameter classes and progressively less in the larger classes. Curves are here presented showing the relation between size and mortality for fires of 10 degrees of severity. A method of rating fire intensity is suggested. It is applicable, with a few exceptions, to the region and can be used without special training or equipment.
