These burn in the crowns of trees and shrubs usually ignited by a surface fire. They are common in coniferous forests and chaparral type shrublands (Paysen et al., 2000). Note that in a grassland with no trees and shrubs, a grass fire would technically be considered a stand-replacement crown fire, and depending on the type of grass and fire, the severity can range from low to high.
