From the text: 'The primary objective of this study was to verify the existing relationship for crown scorch prediction, especially with respect to the P.N.W. species. This was to be achieved through secondary objectives: 1. To determine temperature tolerances of foliage of some common P.N.W. tree species, and 2. To develop scorch height data from experimental underburning over a range of conditions.'
