In December 2011, the Ecological Restoration Institute at Northern Arizona University (ERI) contracted with the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest and the White Mountain Stewardship Project (WMS) Monitoring Board to address four of the prioritized ecological monitoring questions developed for the Project. The questions were: 1) Is there a difference between pre-treatment crown fire potential and post-treatment desired fire behavior across selected analysis areas? 2) What proportion of treated acres exhibited a change in Fire Regime Condition Class (FRCC) from 2004-2014? 3) Are patch sizes of denser (i.e., untreated or lightly treated) areas connected? What is the range of areas and sizes of these patches? 4) Are exotics/invasive species present at landings and burn piles?
