Photos from: Burned Area Emergency Response Recommendations Made for Rice Ridge Fire

Rice Ridge BAER Team

Basal area lost reflects the amount of tree mortality from the Rice Ridge Fire. In many areas, crown fire moved quickly through an area, causing the trees to burn but leaving the soil relatively intact, including the root mass and forest duff materials. Because of this, regardless of tree mortality, the forest floor will start to green up in the next few years in areas with low and moderate soil burn severity.
