Lake States Fire Science Consortium Webinar

Mar 19, 2015, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

The Lake States Fire Science Consortium welcomes Brian Stearns, Huron Shores Ranger District, Huron-Manistee National Forests, who will be presenting Fire Monitoring: Fuels, vegetation, and fire behavior examples from landscape red pine and jack pine burns.

A summary of measurements taken on the Brittle and Memorable prescribed burn projects.  The combined area is over 16,000 acres with the primary fuels comprised of red pine (Pinus resinosa), jack pine (Pinus banksiana), and northern pin oak (Quercus ellipsoidalis).  The goals of the project are to reintroduce fire to a red pine and jack pine dominated ecosystem at a landscape level, improve firefighter and public safety, reduce fuel loading, and restore fire adapted ecosystems.
