Carmel oaks respond to fire mimicry

Slide1

Three years ago I began treating a grove of mature coast live oaks in Carmel, CA with fire mimicry. Yesterday I checked on their response. As the photos here reveal, most of the oaks show a clear improvement in the leaf density.of their canopies.

I haven’t done a tally on the total number of trees I’ve reported on in the nearly 10 years of hosting this website, but a fair estimate is that it is upwards of 1000 case studies, including oaks, pines, cedars, buckeyes, magnolias, fruit trees, and more. It has been immensely rewarding to witness and report these results, and to demonstrate to all concerned a clear way forward for tending our trees and forests.
