The Cascade Creek Property, owned by Save the Redwoods League and located in the coastal hills north of Santa Cruz, burned at mixed severity in the CZU Lightening complex (CZU Lightning Complex Map – Preliminary Vegetation Burn Severity – SIG). High severity burning of redwoods is a relatively rare phenomenon and not much is known about how they will respond. We developed a monitoring plan, collected ground and aerial measurements, and analyzed data to assess the effects of the fire on the property and track recovery of the site over time. Monitoring the conditions of this site should help guide future management and recovery of the property. The ability of redwoods to resprout from both the base and canopy of the tree inspires hope for the future of the damaged trees.
