Fires release carbon to the atmosphere through the combustion of organic material. Some of these greenhouse gases are returned to the landscape as biomass grows back subsequent to fires. The net change of carbon contained in vegetation on the landscape relative to pre-fire levels depends on the time since burning and the type of vegetation that grows back. The time for a forest to develop following a high severity wildfire can be several centuries, but fires that burn at lower severities may be able to replace biomass lost to fire in decadal timescales. The differing productivities of forests and their attendant regrowth rates, coupled with the characteristic fire return interval of each forest type make it difficult...
