Description:
We have used tree rings to reconstruct the fire history of 10 stands dominated by large diameter western larch, Douglas-fir, and ponderosa pine trees. All study sites were in the Montane Spruce (MS) and Interior Cedar Hemlock (ICH) biogeoclimatic zones in the Rocky Mountain Forest District. Each stand was structurally complex with an upper stratum of veteran trees that were >200 years old.
