DescriptionNatural dead fuel loading in 62 undisturbed southwestern ponderosa pine stands averaged 21.9 tons per acre, 12.7 tons per acre ≤ 1-inch diameter. Sixteen mixed conifer stands averaged 44.1 tons per acre of dead fuel. Heavy humus loads contributed to loading of 22.2 tons per acre of fuels ≤ 1-inch diameter.
