    Description

    This paper reports research completed in the fall/winter seasons of 2001/2002 on home owners living in the wildland urban interface for the USDA Forest Service. The primary research focus was to understand human dimensions of wildland fire, particularly attitudes toward and approval of three fuel treatment types (prescribed burning, mechanical thinning, and defensible space). Questionnaires were mailed to homeowner lists obtained from county tax assessors in selected areas of California, Colorado and Florida. The goal of the study was to understand similarities and differences between permanent and seasonal home owners. The consideration of wildland fire during the home buying process, recreation use levels, and attitudes toward and approval of fuel treatments were the dependent variables examined across three study areas for permanent and seasonal home owners.
