RE: Hemlock death and subsequent fire
Joe,
Thanks for the quick reply. I worked for an arborist company that was assigned a contract to treat hemlocks in GSMNP and was lucky enough to be able to experience a number of high quality backcountry groves there. During that time and since, I've heard your comment echoed that the big question is what species will replace the hemlocks. What are your thoughts? A current colleague mentioned that many folks believe it will be shrub-type species such as laurel/rhododendron.

Thanks very much also for directing me to that dissertation. I will have a good look at it and perhaps present it to the discussion section of my current research in fire ecology class.
