    Description

    Prescribed surface fires were conducted in late March-early April 2001, at the Raccoon Ecological Management Area (two ~20 ha areas), and the Tar Hollow (~40 ha) and Zaleski (~40 ha) State Forests in thinned and unthinned mixed-oak forests of southeastern Ohio. Fires are being investigated as a silvicultural tool to aid in regenerating oaks, by removing understory saplings of fire-sensitive species (primarily maples). Previous research has shown that maximum fire temperature is a good variable in evaluating effects and achieving the desired level of topkill.
