Rebuilding Forests After Fire


11 a.m. to noon, April 15, 2021

In this webinar, SW CASC researchers Phil van Mantgem (USGS), Joseph Stewart (UC, Davis), and Micah Wright (USGS), will describe recently published research where they estimate seed production and postfire regeneration of conifers in low-elevation California forests to help managers identify where management may be needed to encourage forest recovery after large wildfires. The researchers will share a tool they created to aid managers in selecting which areas will be best for replanting after megafires. The Postfire Spatial Conifer Restoration Planning Tool (POSCRPT) predicts the probability of postfire conifer regeneration. The tool is designed to simplify the process of predicting postfire conifer regeneration under different precipitation and seed production scenarios.

Date/Time: April 15th, 11am - 12pm PDT
