Fire history data for eastern Washington, USA

Fire scars provide a deep temporal record of historical fires, most of which pre-date Euro-American conquest of the West and subsequent land-use and management changes that obscure the dynamics of natural fire regimes. This eastern Washington fire-history data publication contains a unique spatially explicit fire-scar database which was used to identify the influences of climate, fuels, topography, and management. We provide two components: a georeferenced layer in which each fire-scarred tree in seven watersheds is located, along with a list of fire-scarred trees and years in which that tree was scarred for each of the watershed.
