Fire--Nature's Thinning Agent in Ponderosa Pine Stands
Abstract:The potentialities of fire as a thinning agent were shown by a study of the age-size relationship in a stagnated unburned stand and in stands of similar origin that had been thinned accidentally by fire. The author states that by the use of controlled fire, he has accomplished satisfactory thinning of dense reproduction stands over many hundreds of acres.
