Post-fire Tree Regeneration

post fire lodgepole seedlingPost-fire vegetation recovery is a growing field of concern as larger wildfires impact more of the landscape and climate has the potential to influence how these ecosystems respond. In forested ecosystems, a primary topic of vegetation recovery is tree regeneration. Numerous researchers have examined where natural tree regeneration is prolific and where there is little or no tree regeneration, as well as the causes of these observed patterns. Understanding the patterns of natural tree regeneration can have large impacts on how and where managers prioritize post-fire management actions.

The resources contained here represent the most recent and applicable publications and media on this topic.

This hot topic was developed in partnership with the University of Idaho.
