    Description

    Building firelines in logging slash or dense brush can be costly and hazardous. A new liquid explosive was tested in these and other forest fuel types, It proved effective in brush, understory vegetation, and light-medium slash, but was not effective in deep, heavy slash. Fireline construction by this technique shows promise, but will require more testing and engineering before it is ready for operational use.
