    Title:Effects of stand thinning on fuel parameters in the Fairholme prescribed burn (Banff National Park)
    Researcher(s):Dave Schroeder (Lead)
    Abstract:Banff National Park is conducting a large prescribed burn in the Fairholme range. FERIC has established a site with 3 plots (control, thinned and slash removal, and thinned only); to document the effect of stand density on fire behaviour. The site is dominated by lodgepole pine. It is located on a slope with very shallow soils. Fuel samples and stand density parameter of the three sites were measured before and after the thinning; further samples will be taken after the site has been burned.
