The article "Fire-severity mitigation by prescribed burning assessed from fire-treatment encounters in maritime pine stands" by Juncal Espinosa, Pedro Palheiro, Carlos Loureiro, Davide Ascoli, Assunta Esposito, and Paulo M. Fernandes has been chosen to be an Editors’ Choice by the Canadian Journal of Forest Research, based on its quality and on the interest of readers since its publication. In the February issue, Espinosa et al. explore the effectiveness of understory burning in stands of fire-adapted (thick-barked) Pinus pinaster in Portugal, Italy, and Western Australia. Although fire severity metrics such as scorch height and char height reflected known factors such as fire weather index, topographic position, and stand height (age), prescribed burning effects were significant but surprisingly short lived.
