Abstract

After a burn in 1977, herbage production of Pinus ponderosa increased significantly in 1980 over its 1974 level, in addition to being greater than the 1980 control production. However, the proportion of forage production to total herbage production in 1980 on the burned area decreased after the burn, and was significantly less than the control area forage production. This can be attributed to the increase of non-forage species, notably bracken Pteridium aquilinum. -from Authors Pinus ponderosa bracken Pteridium aquilinum
