This is a short video of an experimental prescribed fire in the Osceola National Forest, Florida. The unit burned in the video was masticated approximately one year prior to the prescribed fire. Fuels prior to mechanical treatment consisted of long (>15 years) unburned pine flatwoods. This burn was part of on going research by doctoral students investigating the implications of mechanical fuels mastication in pine flatwoods on fire behavior, pine mortality, understory composition, and soil carbon dynamics.
