Table 2 Unit forest community types (mixed conifer = elevation 0 m to 1463 m, and low elevation fir = elevation 1463 m to 1774 m) and summary statistics for fire severity in terms of composite burn index (1 = unchanged, 2 = low severity, 3 = moderate severity, 4 = high severity). California black oak (BO) sprout clump counts pre 2012 Chips Fire in 2011 and 2012 and post Chips Fire sprout clump counts in 2015.
