    Description

    Prescribed fires are carried out on the George Washington National Forest (GWNF) in West Virginia to promote long-term resource and social values, including tree regeneration, improving wildlife habitat and aesthetics, and maintenance of low woody fuel loading. Prescribed fire programs have increased on the GWNF over the past 20 years. Although prescribed fire is widely used on the GWNF, methods and techniques for monitoring fire behavior are still in the early stages of development. As part of a larger study to assess the effects of prescribed fire on invasive species in eastern West Virginia, we used simple linear correlation and regression analysis to investigate the relationships between plot-level 3-year post-fire bole scorch height parameters, fire temperature as estimated by thermocouple probes, litter consumption, and sapling mortality to better understand and predict fire effects in mixed-oak and oak-pine forests.
