2000 Hi Meadow Wildfire Study
Entry ID: CSU_fueltreatment_HiMeadow

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The data are from the 2000 Hi Meadow wildfire that burned into an area of the
Pike National Forest that had received extensive fuel treatments since 1990
that included mechanical thinning and prescribed burning. Twelve plot pairs
were established that straddled the fuel treatment boundaries. Data collected
describe stand conditions and fire severity at each plot.

The data were collected to assess the effect of the fuel treatments on stand
conditions and subsequent wildfire severity.

Quality Error checks have been completed. Crown base heights may be underestimated in
high severity plots where lower limbs were consumed. Needle scorch heights are
limited by tree height and thus underestimated on completely scorched trees.

The dataset contains no omissions.
