Climatic drivers of ponderosa pine growth in central Idaho

Publications Posted on: December 04, 2018
Despite the widespread use of ponderosa pine as an important hydroclimate proxy, we actually understand very little about its climate response in the Northern Rockies. Here, we analyze two new ponderosa pine chronologies to investigate how climate influences annual growth.

A model of ponderosa pine growth response to prescribed burning

Publications Posted on: October 14, 2010
Our objective was to model the radial growth response of individual ponderosa pines to prescribed burning in northern Arizona. We sampled 188 trees from two study areas, which were burned in 1976. Within each study area, control and burned trees were of similar age, vigor, height, and competition index. At Chimney Spring, trees were older, less vigorous, and taller and had a higher competition index than at Brannigan.
