Due to concerns of damaging tree productivity, most prescribed burning has become limited to the dormant season, a practice that is inconsistent with the historical pattern of lighting-initiated fire. How different are the effects of seasonal biennial burning and which factors play the biggest role in survival? In this episode, Dr. Marcus Lashley turns to experts Dr. Morgan Varner, Director of Fire Research at Tall Timbers, and John Willis, Forest Researcher with the U.S. Forest Service, to break down the science behind the effects that varying seasonal burns have on pine survival and growth. 

Check out the study mentioned in this episode down below:
