[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: In 1989 a study to quantify the long-term response to various return intervals
of dormant- and growing- season prescription fires was installed on the
Hitchiti Experimental Forest in Jones Co. Georgia, about 20 miles NE of Macon.
The study is comprised of 6 treatments (2-yr winter line headfire, 3-yr winter
line headfire, 3-yr winter line backfire, 3-yr summer line backfire, 6-yr
summer line ... View entire text

Quality Step 1: Overstory Tree Measurements

All trees larger than 4.5 inches DBH are measured periodically on two 0.2 acre
(1/5-acre) circular plots on each treatment plot. Plots are located at the
upper and lower slopes of the burn plot. The 1/5-acre plots are designated
as"Top Left" and"Bottom Right". On each 1/5-acre plot tree measurements ... View entire text
