Too few young white fir trees are killed in such fires, and the pristine openness of the forest is not reclaimed. Furthermore, the number of acres actually burned by prescribed fire so far has only been a small fraction of the total acreage of the forest.
Furthermore, in the absence of ground fire, white fir has grown up densely beneath the older trees, creating potential fire ladders that convert ground fires into destructive crown fires. Ponderosa pine, in contrast, has few juveniles because its seedlings require bare mineral soil to establish themselves on—and only fire clears the litter and provides such a surface.
