Table 2 Listing of treatment units used in this study by replicate and corresponding treatment, with area, date of burn (if applicable), and elevation range. Firing methods included both hand ignition and remote aerial ignition, with a spot fire technique used for hand ignitions when possible to simulate aerial ignition

From: How do fire behavior and fuel consumption vary between dormant and early growing season prescribed burns in the southern Appalachian Mountains?
