[Peter F Ffolliott; Warren P Clary; Frederic R Larson; Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station (Fort Collins, Colo.); United States. Forest Service.]. Although much is known about the interface between fire and ponderosa pine growth and stand health, we know little about the effects of fire on tree defenses against bark beetles. This research will provide incite into the variability in resin defenses among ponderosa pines and the effects fire severity on resin chemistry of ponderosa pine. A prescribed fire in consumed nearly three-fourths of the total forest floor. Eleven years after the fire, compaction of initial needle drop plus normal annual needle fall have created a forest floor depth two-thirds that of the prefire level. More ponderosa pine seedlings started on the burned areas than under adjacent unburned stands and herbage production increased. Prescribed fire is an important tool in the management of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) forests, yet effects on bark beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) activity and tree mortality are poorly understood in the southwestern compared bark beetle attacks and tree mortality between paired prescribed-burned and unburned stands at each of four sites in Arizona Cited by:

Fire Behavior and Fire Effects of Mastication and Prescribed Fire in a Ponderosa Pine Plantation Alicia Reiner, Nicole Vaillant, JoAnn Fites-Kaufman, and Scott Dailey USFS, Adaptive Management Services Enterprise Team Presented by Scott N. Dailey. Most of the forests dominated by ponderosa pine historically had a large component of large ponderosa pine (Covington and Moore , Hann and others ). Be-cause of fire-suppression efforts, the once frequent (20 years or less) low-intensity surface fires no longer clean the forest floor of .

Prescribed fire is an important tool in the management of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) forests, yet effects on bark beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) activity and tree mortality are poorly understood in the southwestern U.S. We compared bark beetle attacks and tree mortality between paired prescribed-burned and unburned stands at each of four sites in Arizona Cited by: The animal life of an average pine forest in Northern Arizona is Bambi-esque with the standard cast of furry woodland creatures, including skunks, porcupines, deer, bunnies and the like. There are a few animals that are closely associated with the ponderosa pine, however, like the Tassel-eared Abert's squirrel, that uses the tree for. Prescribed Fire Effects on Wintering, Bark-Foraging Birds in Northern Arizona. Pinus ponderosa (ponderosa pine) forest ecosystem restoration is a growing emphasis in the southwestern United. Fire effects on cheatgrass in ponderosa pine Int. J. Wildland Fire 97 disturbance could increase cheatgrass, voluntarily halted further burning in forests along the South Fork of the Kings River, until the problem could be evaluated. Here, we investigate how fire and other factors affect the persistence of cheatgrass in these previously burned.
