Title: Tree-Killing Las Conchas Fire in New Mexico

Description:

USGS scientist Craig D. Allen observes the results of the extensive, tree-killing fire that consumed almost all above-ground biomass in this part of the Las Conchas Fire burn area in the Jemez Mountains, New Mexico. Photo taken in late August 2011, two months post-fire. Forest drought stress is highly correlated with mortality from poor growth, bark beetle outbreaks, and high-severity fire.
