Progress 10/01/03 to 09/30/04 Outputs Unit scientists continued our work on response of ponderosa pine forests to thinning and prescribed fire. We also initiated a project to study varying levels of fire salvage intensity and continued the young stand modeling work for California, Oregon and Washington.

The main objectives of thinning as a management practice in pine stands are to: • Redistribute growth potential of the stand to trees that have potential to become high quality, valuable timber. • Promote or improve the health and vigor of individual trees in order to reduce the risk of losing the entire.
Thinning pine stands reduces stand stress as fewer trees per acre are competing for water, sunlight, and nutrients. THINNING METHODS There are several thinning methods that can be employed once it is determined that a stand should be thinned.
Choice of a method is usually based on stand density, stand uniformity, and owner objective. The Trigo fire burned ha of the Manzano Mountains in central New Mexico in The fire burned with mixed severity through ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) stands on the Cibola National Forest and private burned area exhibited a range of stand densities enabling this research to quantify the relationship between variation in tree density and burn severity using the.

Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), also called western yellow pine, is one of the most widely distributed pines in western North America.A major source of timber, ponderosa pine forests are also important as wildlife habitat, for recreational use, and for esthetic values.

The extent of improvement in growth is shown by thinning studies in the Pacific Northwest cover-ing periods of 10 to 24 years. These studies, together with general. Growth and structural changes in a mosaic of even-aged ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) stands were studied for 25 years to determine the long-term impacts of a heavy thinning treatment to a basal-area level of 25 ft2/acre.
Basal area and volume growth of these stands has increased since thinning and likely will continue to increase as the residual trees increase in size.

Salvage logging is the practice of logging trees in forest areas that have been damaged by wildfire, flood, severe wind, disease, insect infestation, or other natural disturbance in order to recover economic value that would otherwise be lost.
Although the primary motivation of salvage logging is economic, it has also been suggested that salvage logging may reduce erosion, reduce intensity of.
Habitat: Ponderosa pine trees occur as pure stands or in mixed conifer forests in the mountains. It is an important component of the Interior Ponderosa Pine, Pacific Ponderosa Pine-Douglas fir, and Pacific Ponderosa Pine forest cover types.
In the northwest, it is typically associated with Rocky Mountain Douglas fir, lodgepole pine, grand fir, and. Ponderosa pine is typically dominant on warm, dry sites with a short growing season and very low summer precipitation.
Temperatures annual average 41° to 50° F with extremes ranging from ° to ° F. Being drought tolerant, it out competes other species to.
ponderosa pine forests of western North America. Individual outbreaks last up to two decades, killing as much as 60 percent of the trees and 80 percent of the stand volume. During in areOregon, beetles reached epidemic levels in the many stands of lodgepole and second- growth ponderosa pine.

• What is the site’s carrying capacity? • Will the stand be thinned later? Discuss these questions with your OSU Extension forester or a forestry consultant before planting.
Common spacing for newly planted ponderosa pine plantings is about 10 to 12 feet apart. Vegetation management.• Restore old growth and second-growth forests and riparian areas with ecologically driven tree thinning, shrub mowing, and prescribed fire.
• Protect both the forest and nearby homes by restoring forest conditions more likely to support low intensity, stand-maintaining fire behavior characteristic of the ponderosa pine forest type.
