DescriptionThe effect of prescribed burning on soil movement in 25 established gullies was studied on Sumter National Forest, South Carolina. One moderately intense backfire in Piedmont pine communities did not have a measurable effect on soil mov.ement in these gullies. Studies involving the effects of burning on factors other than soil movement are recommended.
