Abstract

Results from an investigation of fuel succession in lodgepole pine forests subject to mountain pine beetle epidemics in or near Glacier National Park are presented. The objective of the study was to develop predictive equations for fuel loading in relation to the number of years following mountain pine beetle epidemics in the Douglas-fir/pinegrass and spruce/queencup beadlily habitat types. The number of years following a mountain pine beetle epidemic was used to predict fuel loading. Two trends were identified.
