Western forests are increasingly subject to large, severe wildfires that leave behind large quantities of standing and fallen woody debris. In areas that experience total overstory tree mortality, a lack of seed sources may affect future ecosystem trajectories. ERI researchers studied 14 ponderosa pine-dominated wildfire sites of different ages throughout Arizona to better understand snag and woody debris dynamics, and to assess post-fire regeneration in terms of probable future successional trajectories.
