Some Effects of Thinning a Ponderosa Pine Thicket with a Prescribed Fire, II
Abstract:Six years after prescribed burning in young ponderosa pine, height growth of crop trees was reduced and their diameter growth was not different from that of an unburned area. Prescribed burning definitely resulted in thinning from below. Results of this study failed to verify findings from earlier study of a nearby area in which height and diameter growth of crop trees had been stimulated after prescribed burning.
