Trout Creek 1999 Burn

Author(s): Sherel Goodrich
Year Published: 2008

A small prescribed fire near the mouth of Trout Creek in Strawberry Valley, Wasatch County, Utah, on the Uinta National Forest provided an opportunity to compare production and vascular plant composition in unburned and burned areas. At four years post burn, production of herbaceous plants was about four times greater in the burned area than in the unburned area. Most plants found in the unburned area were found in the burned area at four years post burn.
