C6 - Conifer Plantation

This fuel type is characterized by pure, fully stocked conifer plantations with closed crowns and no understory or shrub layer. The forest floor is covered by needle litter with an underlying duff layer up to 10 cm deep. The crown base height is taken into account in predicting fire spread rate and crowning.
