Subject: Prescribed burns, Mixed conifer
Abstract: Efforts to restore degraded forest ecosystems often involve thinning small-diameter trees and reintroducing surface fire; however, in some areas, such as national parks, mechanical tree thinning is kept to a minimum. In these situa-tions, prescribed fire is the best tool available to restore historical fire regimes and forest structure over broad spatial scales.
