Webinar - After the Smoke Clears: The Use of Wood Mulch to Reduce Post-fire Erosion Risk


Presenter: Pete Robichaud

In recent years, wood based mulches have been applied to hillslopes when downstream values at risk have warranted erosion control treatments. This webinar will review the properties of wood mulch, performance as compared to agricultural straw and the logistics of applying wood mulch to burned hillslopes. Recent examples of successful post-fire projects where wood mulch was uses will be highlighted. This webinar was hosted by the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center, the Joint Fire Science Program, and the International Association of Wildland Fire.
