    Description

    Although prescribed burning is common in the Southeastern United States, most fuel models apply to only western forests. This paper documents a fuel classification system that was developed for plantations of loblolly and longleaf pines for the Upper Coastal Plain region. Multivariate analysis of variance and discriminant function analysis were used to confirm eight discrete fuel groups. A photo series describing these unique fuel complexes is presented to display preburn loading and postburn reductions. This photo series will improve the accuracy of fuel-loading estimates and will provide a measure of the effectiveness of prescribed fires for rough reduction.
