Title: Delayed Tree Mortality Following Fire in Western Conifers

Project Proposal Abstract: This proposal applies to Task 1 of AFP 2005-2 as it seeks to provide locally important knowledge of delayed tree mortality following fire. Tree mortality is a large factor in post fire treatment actions, including post fire salvage logging. The Fire Sciences Lab has been studying delayed tree mortality following fire for the past twenty-five years. Forest Health Protection in Region 5 has also tracked mortality following fire for ten years. While many papers have resulted from the studies, there is a large amount of data that has never been analyzed nor reported in the literature. This is an opportunity to extensively analyze the largest dataset on tree injury and mortality following fire in existence. The Fire Lab and FHP have worked cooperatively on tree mortality for the past three years. RMRS and FHP's close partnership and familiarity with the data place them in a strong position to combine and analyze the data to produce robust mortality models for western coniferous species.
