Entry ID: USDA_FS32

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The purpose of this dataset is to determine the effect of prescribed
fire and pre-cutting for salvage on tree re-generation, plant
composition, production, and quality in spruce-fir and mixed wood
stands defoliated by spruce budworm.

"Plant Composition and Production Following Fire and Clear-Cutting for
Salvage in Budworm Defoliated Stands" describes number of regenerated
trees, plant production, vegetation, vegetation selection by deer and
moose and forage quality on: 1) defoliated, salvaged burned stands; 2)
defoliated, savaged, unburned stands; 3) defoliated, unsalvaged,
unburned stands; 4) undefoliated, unsalvaged, unburned stands.

Data collected in Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge, Washington
