Description: In testing the degree of tolerance or susceptibility of tree stems to heat from prescribed fires, it is desirable to apply controlled quantities of heat to the lower bole. This paper describes an infrared heater capable of simulating the intensities of prescribed fires and mobile enough for use in the field under natural conditions. Procedures for calibrating the unit are discussed.
