Author(s): Colin C. Hardy, Elizabeth D. Reinhardt
Year Published: 1998
Description:

Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest is used as a case study to model the effects of prescribed fire and silvicultural treatments on stand structure, snag recruitment, and coarse woody debris. The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) and the Fire and Fuels Extension simulate the effects of the following treatment prescriptions: shelterwood with reserves, prescribed fire, shelterwood plus prescribed fire, and no treatment.
