Data Extent

Fuels, weather, fire behavior and vegetation data pertaining to Rx fire in a young loblolly pine plantation in Jones County, Georgia

This data publication contains fuels, weather, fire behavior, crown damage, and hardwood vegetation preburn and postburn data related to a prescribed fire in a young loblolly pine (Pinus taeda) plantation in Georgia. Treatments consisted of 2 levels of backfire frontal intensity (low and moderate) applied to a five year old loblolly pine plantation. Pre-treatment conditions and treatment response were measured after each of two postfire growing seasons, resulting in measurements taken from 1982 through 1984. This data publication also contains photographs of the control, low, and moderate fireline intensity plots along with aerial images of the study area, which was in the Lower Piedmont of Georgia about 20 miles north of Macon, Georgia, USA.
