Title: Effectiveness of Litter Removal in Preventing Mortality of Yellow Barked Ponderosa Pine in Northern Arizona

Project Proposal Abstract: We propose to measure the effectiveness of removing deep litter/duff in preventing yellow barked ponderosa pine mortality due to prescribed fire. Our study will utilize six sites on three National Forests where deep litter/duff has accumulated around the lower tree bole due to decades of fire suppression. Our experiment is designed to separate the mortality effects of litter/duff removal from the mortality effects of prescribed fire.
