DescriptionStand-replacing wildfires have historically shaped the forest structure of dry, sandy jack pine-dominated ecosystems at stand and landscape scales in northern Lower Michigan. Unique fire behavior during large wildfire events often preserves long strips of unburned trees arranged perpendicular to the direction of fire spread. These biological legacies create heterogeneity across the burned and otherwise homogenous landscape, providing diversity of forest structure, stand age, and wildlife habitat.
