      Prior fires can limit fire extent or burn severity for ~5 to 20 years, depending on region, forest type, and individual fire events (Parks et al. ; Parks et al. b). Thus, providing a buffer and potential containment area within a high-severity burn perimeter will decrease the likelihood of burning planted :// The open access volume, Denver and the Rocky Mountain West, is a compendium of short essays on topics of geographic interest about the region as opposed to traditional research articles.

Google Wildland fire is an important natural process in many ecosystems. However, fire exclusion has reduced frequency of fire and area burned in many dry forest types, which may affect vegetation structure and composition, and potential fire behavior. In forests of the western U.S., these effects pose a challenge for fire and land managers who seek to restore the ecological process of fire
