SPECIES: Sorbus sitchensis | Sitka Mountain-Ash
IMMEDIATE FIRE EFFECT ON PLANT : Specific information on the immediate effect of fire on Sitka mountain-ash is not available in the literature. Since it is a small tree with thin bark, it may survive light-severity fire but is probably killed by severe fire. Mature mountain-ashes (Sorbus spp.) have been eliminated by fires at various locations throughout the United States and Canada [6]. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF FIRE EFFECT : NO-ENTRY PLANT RESPONSE TO FIRE : Sitka mountain-alder was absent from burned sites but present on abjacent unburned sites 29 years following fire in alpine heath and krummholz communities in Washington [10]. Mountain-ash (Sorbus spp.) sprouts and seedlings appeared in the first and second postfire years after spring and summer wildfires and spring prescribed fires in Minnesota [1]. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF PLANT RESPONSE : NO-ENTRY FIRE MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS : NO-ENTRY
