Pavlovic, Noel and Leicht-Young, Stacey. 2012. WEBINAR: Fire effects on the highly invasive Oriental bittersweet. Lake States Fire Science Consortium Webinar Series : 

Abstract or Summary

Oriental bittersweet (Celastrus orbiculatus) is a highly invasive liana (woody vine) that occurs throughout the Eastern United States. This twining plant can blanket and girdle adjacent vegetation, affecting succession and damaging trees. In areas where prescribed fire is a management tool, the response of Oriental bittersweet to fire needs to be quantified, rather than relying on anecdotal evidence. Currently, in areas already infested with this species, there are no strategies for prioritizing the efficacy of pre- or post-fire treatments on Oriental bittersweet.
