Timber (Grass and Understory)
Timber (Litter and Understory)
Narrative: Mixed conifer timber consisting of Douglas-fir, western larch, Engelmann spruce, and lodgepole pine below 6,000. Sub-alpine fir, white bark pine, and lodgepole pine occur above 6,000. All timber types have ladder fuels with black moss/lichens that make for an easy transition to crown fire. Dead fine fuels, grass, and slash will increase surface fire spread. Most live fuels, except for red alder, are available to carry fire and fuel moistures will continue to drop with seasonal drying.
