Abstract:

    The goal of the project was providing fire regime reference data for coniferous forests, assisting in the development of fire management and forest plans under consideration or under revision within the four National Forests.  Fire scar dendrochronology is used in many areas of the United States in reconstructing historical patterns of fire frequency, fire season, and fire extent.  Certain portions of California (southern Sierra Nevada and the Lake Tahoe Basin) have been extensively sampled for fire history, but similar research has been lacking for the southern California mountains.  Here we provide fire history information for conifer forests within the four National Forests of southern California (Los Padres, Angeles, San Bernardino, and Cleveland), and one California State Park (Cuyamaca Rancho State Park) in the Peninsular and Transverse mountain ranges of southern California.
