Survival of Coniferous Plantations Following Fires in Los Angeles County
Coniferous plantations have been made throughout the San Gabriel Mountains of Los Angeles County, California, since the turn of the century, mostly by the Los Angeles County Department of Forester and Fire Warden. A majority of the plantations surviving the arid conditions of this area eventually have been destroyed by frequent brush fires, which would indicate a special need for protection. This study evaluated the effectiveness of several maintenance measures, and provides information for the future design and care of coniferous plantations.
