The survival of Pinus ponderosa saplings subjected to increasing levels of fire behavior and impacts on post‐fire growth

Publications Posted on: May 30, 2019
Improved predictions of tree species mortality and growth metrics following fires are important to assess fire impacts on forest succession, and ultimately forest growth and yield. Recent studies have shown that North American conifers exhibit a ‘toxicological dose‐response’ relationship between fire behavior and the resultant mortality or recovery of the trees.

GENGYM: A variable density stand table projection system calibrated for mixed conifer and ponderosa pine stands in the Southwest

Publications Posted on: February 26, 2019
A computerized growth and yield model based on a variable density stand table projection system using 1-inch-wide diameter classes has been developed for projecting expected stand conditions in southwestern mixed conifer and ponderosa pine stands, including the effects of dwarf mistletoe. Stand management options include both even-aged and uneven-aged cutting methods.
