Table 1 Topographical and forest type data for all blocks across study area, with mean and standard deviation of elevation, slope, aspect, and maximum distance between sites within a block. Blocks 8 and 9 contained no LS treatment due to high severity fire in lodgepole/aspen forest type. All other blocks contain one each LS, HS, and HL site. “Mixed-PIPO” indicates a mixed conifer forest dominated by ponderosa pine pre-fire, “mixed-PICO” indicates a mixed conifer forest dominated by lodgepole pine, “mixed-PIFL” is a mixed conifer forest dominated by limber pine, “PICO/POTR” was a mixed lodgepole pine and aspen-dominated forest
