Description: The Davis Fire presents an interesting example of fire behavior in subalpine fir, partially dead lodgepole pine with multiple age classes, and moist site Douglas-fir vegetation types. This has been summer of moderate temperatures and intermittent moisture that has kept live herbaceous and live woody moistures fairly high and dead fuel moistures at a moderate level. Although the understory vegetation in the uplands has been consumed within the majority of the burn area, immediate vegetation response is expected due to available moisture and the ability of grouse whortleberry and beargrass to recover via rhizomes following fire. In addition, riparian vegetation including willows and aspen are expected to recolonize burned areas within the next few growing seasons.
