Post-fire environments are dynamic and complex and trends of recent fires within the Sierra mixed conifer type include uncharacteristically large areas of high vegetation burn severity. These trends add to the complexity of opportunities and challenges for post-fire restoration efforts - a key component of which is reforestation. This webinar will discuss post-fire considerations for reforestation strategies and implementation on public lands. The discussion of these considerations will touch on strategy to balance both ecological and investment risk and return, managing for natural regeneration, fuel trajectories, competing vegetation, and growth and development of forest structure, and the realities and logistics of implementation such as safety, access, scale, and organizational capacity.
