Abstract:

Studies of downed woody fuel and of litter and duff accumulation in the sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum [Lindl.] Buchh.)-mixed conifer forest of Kings Canyon National Park in California showed that prescribed burning removed much of the fuel which had accumulated during 60 years of fire suppression. Within seven years after prescribed burning, fuel was again sufficient to support a fire.
