Abstract:
This data publication includes tree characteristics before and after mastication treatments, fuelbed characteristics, and fire behavior observed in both field and laboratory burning experiments at the West Hatter Unit of the University of Idaho Experimental Forest. This study included three ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) dominated stands, each planted in 1982 (making them approximately 30-years old) after clearcutting and broadcast burning left few residual large logs and stumps. Both fine and coarse mastification were applied to each of these stands in June 2014. Control and treatment data were collected from December 2013 through December 2017.
