Relationships between mature trees and fire fuel hazard in Australian forest

Wilson, Nicholas; Cary, Geoffrey J.; Gibbons, Philip

Description

Increasing density of mid-storey vegetation since European settlement has been observed in forests and woodlands in several parts of the world and may result in greater fire fuel hazard. This phenomenon is often attributed to a longer interval between fires since European settlement, but may also be influenced by tree removal during the same period. We hypothesised that the number of mature trees in a stand reduces mid-storey vegetation cover and the associated fire fuel hazard through...[Show more]
