[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The study was established in 1958 on the Osceola National Forest in north
Florida by the Macon Fire Lab to determine the optimum prescribed burning
rotation in the palmetto/gallberry fuel complex and to determine changes in
soils and vegetation associated with frequency of fires. The study is located
on a well drained site that supports a natural stand of longleaf pine (with
some slash) with a ... View entire text

Quality Overstory Tree Measurements

All trees larger that 10 centimeters DBH were measured in December of 2003 on a
0.2-acre circular plot located in the center of each burn plot. Trees were
tagged with numbered tags. Measurements include DBH to the nearest 0.1
centimenter of every tree and total height to the nearest 0.1 meter of every
fifth tree. These plots will be remeasured periodically.
