Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: Presents a method for predicting future sawtimber losses due to fire-caused wounds. Losses are in terms of: (1) lumber value in dollars, (2) volume in board feet, (3) length of defect in feet, and (4) cross sectional area of defect in square inches. The methods apply to northern red, black, scarlet, white and chestnut oaks.
Keywords: forest fire damage appraisal, forest fire effects
