Leon, In general, we look at how much, if any, of the live foliage is still green and then the extent of char on the base and trunk. I can assist you with this. We have guidelines that I can share. and I am scheduling field visits in your area. Please contact me directly at glenn.ahrens@oregonstate.edu
