    beside the dominant forest types and including details of the shrub and herbaceous components of the forest. Each of these has significant visual impact, but requires that sufficiently detailed data are available. Such information is particularly important when discussing treatments to decrease fuel . most effective in promoting forest resilience to wildfire. Introduction Forest fuel treatments are used by managers for ecological restoration and reducing fire hazard. Due to past management decisions and long-term fire exclusion, forests are more dense and are susceptible to severe wildfires. Fuel treatments aim to reduce the intensity andFile Size: 3MB.

    local communities that would be the most impacted by the fuel treatments. The fuel loading was beyond the experience of the land managers and fire personnel on the Superior; and they needed a quick upgrade in skills and training to do able to do the large-scale fuel treatments, primarily large acreage prescribed burns. Wildfire-contingent effects of fuel treatments can promote ecological resilience in seasonally dry conifer forests Jens T. Stevens, Hugh D. Safford, and Andrew M. Latimer Abstract: Fire suppression has made many seasonally dry conifer forests more susceptible to high-severity wildfires, which cause large changes in forest structure and function.
