The 2002 Hayman Fire burned across 55 800 ha of montane forest in Colorado, USA. Also burned were understorey vegetation plots that had been measured 5–6 yrs prior. We examined postfire understorey development by remeasuring the plots annually from 2003 to 2007. Our results suggest that the fire had largely neutral or stimulative impacts on understorey plant communities.
