Title: Effects of fire, insect, and pathogen damage on wood quality of dead and dying western conifers

Author: Lowell, Eini C.; Rapp, Valerie A.; Haynes, Richard W.; Cray, Caitlin.;

Date: 2010

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-816. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 73 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: We update and expand the 1992 survey of research findings by Lowell and colleagues, providing an ecological context for the findings, using a more reader-friendly format, and including extensive citations so readers can get indepth information on particular topics. Our intent is that managers will use this report as a desktop reference and field guide. The worksheet can be copied and taken to the field, as a reminder of key indicators to look for and key questions to ask. With a visual assessment process, potential volume and value losses associated with disturbance can be estimated for postdisturbance management planning.

Keywords: Fire-killed stands, fire-damaged stands, insect damage, pathogen damage, wood quality, wood deterioration
