Criteria for assessing fire danger in larch forests

Lesnoe Khozyaistvo ( 6): 39-41

Criteria for assessing fire danger in larch forests

A review is presented of the history of forest fires in larch forests of the Russian Far East, as well as ways of assessing the threat posed by forest fires. The fire resistance of larch stands depends on their age structure, stand density, growth conditions and health status.
