Recognition that fire plays an important ecological role in south‐western forests of the USA goes back over three‐quarters of a century (Leopold ) but accomplishing even a limited reintroduction of fire has proved challenging (Parsons ; Miller & Parsons ).The USA policy of wildland fire use (WFU) for resource benefits gives managers flexibility in responding to.

The fuel structure and flammability of fire-resilient subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa) stands in Washington were studied in to determine the relation between these forests and fire; for comparison, fuel patterns were also studied in fire-stable ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) stands.

It has long been known that subalpine fir forests burn catastrophically, but the contributions of fuel Cited by: Fuel structure and flammability of subalpine fir stands on Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park were studied to determine the relationship between the fuel of these forests and fire.

Woody fuel structure and fire in subalpine fir forests Fuel was sampled throughout the forest by the standard Forest Service method and also by a modification of this method which measured only the fuel near the trunks of the trees.

Woody Fuel Structure and Fire in Subalpine Fir Forests, Olympic National Park, Washington. By K L Taylor and R W Fonda more than twice as much fuel in subalpine fir forests accumulated around the bases of the fir trees than in the forest as a whole, and the many dead branches on the lower boles may allow fire to travel up into the canopy Author: K L Taylor and R W Fonda.

Fire history was determined by fire scar analysis in a 73—km 2 subalpine watershed in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA. Evidence was found for 15 fires sinceof which 7 were major fires that burned >4 ha, destroyed the existing forest, and initiated secondary by:   Woody fuel structure and fire in subalpine fir forests, Olympic National Park, Washington.

The Griff Fire. NPS Photo. Given the Olympic Peninsula's reputation for rain, one might expect the forests to be impervious to fire.

The evidence of tree rings, charcoal analysis, forest composition and structure, however, tells a different story.

Subalpine Forests Spire-like subalpine firs normally shed snow easily, but in severe storms, heavy snow and ice can build up and snap off limbs and trunks. Buffeted by hurricane force winds, scoured by ice crystals, and weighted down by heavy snow—life can be a challenge for mountain trees.

The fire generated considerable smoke visible from Hurricane Ridge and Obstruction Point Road within Olympic National Park.

Now the diverse forest communities of the park and neighboring wilderness areas in Olympic National Forest are even more significant as rare islands of habitat surrounded by altered landscapes.

The fuel structure of subalpine fir was shown to be different from that of fire-stable. Dead woody fuels were sampled in 16 upland forest stands representing a chronosequence of forest successional stages.

Different fuel components show different temporal patterns, but adequate levels of all components necessary for an intense crown fire are not present simultaneously until stand age yr. Therefore, the average interval between successive fires is. The article reviews the book "A Great Day to Fight Fire: Mann Gulch, ,' by Mark Matthews.

Wildfires in the Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and western Montana, USA) have been immense in recent years, capturing the attention of resource managers, fire scientists, and the general public.

This paper synthesizes understanding of the potential effects of changing climate and fire regimes on Pacific Northwest forests, including effects on disturbance and stress interactions.Fire consequences severe • High fuel loads – stand destroying crown fires usual with fire • Many species fire avoiders Forest harvest Wishkah Valley Western Hemlock Forests: Human Impacts & Management Most of our lowland forests are heavily managed for production Less than 10% of original forests remain at low elevations in western WA WA.
