- After 7 years, the “thin once-burn twice” treatment did provide opportunities for limited oak regeneration--time will tell whether regenerating oak will reach canopy.
- Two prescribed fires were necessary to reduce the competition from maple regrowth.
- Thin-burn treatments enhanced oak-hickory regeneration primarily on dry or intermediate sites with 8.5-19% canopy openness, and with at least 5000 oak-hickory seedlings/ha prior to treatments. If these factors were met, we calculate that roughly 50% of the area could become ‘competitive’ for oak-hickory in the next forest. (More information)
- Thermocouples with buried loggers were shown to provide an accurate method to inform fire managers of the relative fire intensities across the landscape. (More information)
