Forested Vegetation Condition

A post-fire condition in which fire severity was classified as low, with the initial assessment showing enough live trees remaining for the forest to function normally. Most of the area has more than 20% canopy cover. A follow-up diagnosis and silvicultural prescription may be required to complete the final assessment and determine what type of management activities are needed to maintain the growth and vigor of the forest. Also a severity class used in RAVG assessments in 2007, in which percent basal area loss is less than 50% .
