Sun Creek – 03 Research Summary

Final Report, Forest Restoration of Sun Creek, Crater Lake National Park

 Research Summary

Description of Area and Techniques

Four 50 x 50 m (1/4 ha) plots were established: one logged and one unlogged plot in ponderosa pine-white fir and sugar pine-white fir community types. Forest structure was quantified on each plot, and then each plot was burned. Forest structure was measured on each plot. This approach allowed quantification of the effects of (a) fire suppression, (b) logging (in the 1930’s), and (c) the immediate effects of one prescribed fire.
