DescriptionInterest in using stand-replacement prescribed fires to regenerate stands of Table Mountain pine (Pinus pungens Lamb.) has increased in the past decade, but the type and intensity of fire needed to achieve success have been undefined. In an earlier paper, we concluded from first-year results that flames must reach into the crowns to kill most overstory trees and provide sunlight to the forest floor. In this paper, we show that lower-intensity flames will eventually achieve the same results. Overstory mortality continued throughout the 6-year measurement period, and pine numbers increased. Stand replacement was successful at all intensities measured.
