Title: Trees Killed by the 2011 Las Conchas Fire in New Mexico
Extensive, contiguous mortality of piñon pine, ponderosa pine, and Douglas-fir trees, killed in the first afternoon and evening of the 2011 Las Conchas Fire in the Jemez Mountains, New Mexico. Forest drought stress is highly correlated with mortality from poor growth, bark beetle outbreaks, and high-severity fire.
