Notes from the Field 164: Burning Big! A Workshop on Large Burn Implementation in the Central Appalachians

Cecil Frost has spent his career studying historical landscape fire ecology and fire-dependent species. In addition to looking at the rate at which fire returned on a landscape, he studies fire pathways to glimpse how fire moved across pre-settlement country. In this time of highly departed ecosystems, fractured landscapes and the sixth mass extinction, returning good fire at natural and meaningful scales is key for creating healthy forests and a diversity of habitats in the Central Appalachians.
