Five Years of Monitoring Forest Structure and Composition for a Landscape-Scale Controlled Burning Project in the Allegheny Highlands of Virginia
This poster, presented at the 39th Annual Natural Areas Conference (October 9-12, 2012 in Norfolk, VA), documents baseline and early post-treatment conditions on the 3,700-acre Warm Springs Mountain Restoration Project in the Allegheny Highlands FLN landscape. A total of 225 macroplots in 11 burn units were sampled during the growing seasons from 2007 through 2010. The plots will be resampled five years post-burn as well.
