    Description

    Many areas throughout the United States are facing the triple threat of increasing fire severity, residential growth in areas prone to wildland fire, and suppression costs and losses. In addition, substantial changes are occurring in the way we plan and implement management on federal lands relative to use of wildland fire, prescribed fire, and mechanical fuel management. Past emphasis in fire management has been on wildfire suppression and prescribed fire in support of other resources such as hazard reduction and site preparation in harvested areas and wildlife habitat improvement. Federal financial support has only recently supported the large-scale use of prescribed burning and mechanical fuels treatments to reduce unnatural fuel accumulations in non-wilderness areas.
