Abstract:

Exposure of lower trunks of trees to surface fires can be simulated by burning an oil-soaked wick wrapped around the trunk near the ground. External and internal tree temperatures on both windward and lee sides are comparable to those in natural-fuel burns, and the wick provides better fuel control, ease of replication, economy of labor, low risk of fire escape, and conservation of trees.
