Data Extent

Lubrecht State Experimental Forest Prescribed Fire Effects Study 1973-2006

This data publication contains pre and post fires stand and fuels data collected over a 33 year period. Rod Norum as part of his PhD dissertation work, began this study in 1973. He laid out 32 small (25 by 25 meter) plots in a Douglas fir/western larch stand on the University of Montana's Lubrecht Experimental Forest. Twenty of the plots were burned in separate prescribed fires in 1973. Norum collected pre fire data in 1973 and post fire stand and fuels data in 1975. The plots were resampled in 1983, 1996 and 2006 to monitor post fire fuel and stand dynamics.
