    Description

    The role played by the fuel conditions within the Hayman Fire severity was complex and does not lend itself to a single conclusion or simple summary. Uncertainties in the original treatment prescription, its implementation, discerning the coverage, extent, and condition at the time of the fire made it difficult for us to clearly determine treatment effects and relate them to treatment type or amount. Available fire documentation such as the fire growth and severity maps compiled by the fire management and BAER (Burned Area Emergency Rehabilitation) teams were immensely helpful, but they oversimplify inherent complexities in fire behavior and ephemeral weather conditions and may contain random or systematic errors (for example, classification of burn severity).
