This webinar will connect science and fire management in the Davis Mountains of west Texas. Three wildfires burned through the pinyon-juniper-oak forests of the Davis Mountains in 2011 and 2012. Fuel treatments (prescribed fire, thinning, and thinning+prescribed fire) applied before the wildfires reduced fire severity and subsequent tree mortality relative to areas that experienced wildfire alone. Overall tree mortality was still high, due partly to drought conditions at the time of the fires.

Hosted by the Southwest Fire Science Consortium.
