Title: Poor prospects for ponderosas

Author: Cole, C.

Subject: Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), Fire effects

Abstract: Dense ponderosa pine stands consumed by the Rodeo-Chediski fire are giving way to a more varied forest of oaks, junipers and shrubs in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, according to research by two Northern Arizona University graduate students. The students are studying how the trees and lower-growing plants regenerate following the 2002 fire, comparing areas that were thinned or burned before the fire to those that weren't.
