Wildfire effects in grand fir-hemlock forests

Status: 
Complete
Dates: 
January, 2016

The objectives of this study are to collect wildfire severity measurements, fire injury, and mortality in 2015 wildfires on the Idaho Panhandle National Forest in order to:

1) Evaluate accuracy of fire-induced tree mortality model in FOFEM for grand fir and western hemlock

2) Develop mortality models for grand fir and western hemlock and compare with existing models

3) Compare regeneration dynamics in salvage and unsalvaged areas
