Title: Changes in forest vegetation and fuel conditions 15 years after prescribed fire

Project Proposal Abstract: Fire fundamentally changes the trajectory of forest stand development and fuel dynamics, yet there are few long-term studies with robust experimental designs that have closely followed these changes and used actual (vs. modeled) data. Many public lands have now been burned by wildfire or prescribed burns. Managers are tasked with developing large-scale plans to guide forest landscapes including burned areas toward a desired condition of greater resilience. Yet for many forest types there is a lack of information on how conditions may change through time, spatially vary with site conditions and past fire behavior, and are affected by climatic conditions. Re-measuring current vegetation and fuel conditions, the Teakettle Experiment has the baseline data, and the publication and outreach record to provide managers with highly relevant research.
