Abstract:
The data are from the 1999 Fontainebleau wildfire that burned into an area that had previously been treated with 3 prescribed fires (1988, 1992, and 1998) in the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge. Nine plots were established in both the treated area and an adjacent untreated area. Data collected describe stand conditions and fire severity at each plot. The data were collected to assess the effect of repeated prescribed burn treatments on stand conditions and subsequent wildfire severity.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Error checks have been completed. Since only one treatment area was affected by the Fontainebleau fire, plots are pseudo-replicates. The treatment boundary was defined by a railroad which may have augmented the effect of the treatment on the behavior of the wildfire. We deemed this unlikely, however, since the wildfire crossed the railroad more than once, as well as a much wider two-lane highway with a mown median. 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. Trees less than 10 cm in diameter were excluded from calculations of plot means for stand conditions and fire severity, since small trees are not accurately sampled by the variable radius plots employed in our sampling method.
