    Description

    In August, the human-caused Tin Cup Fire took off a few miles to the north of where the Fire Sciences Laboratory crew was busy collecting fuels data on the Trapper Bunkhouse study site west of Darby. The fire demonstrated how quickly wildfire can escape initial attack in untreated stands, especially under extremely dry conditions, and how treated areas helped moderate fire intensities, especially important around homes. These kinds of treatments are a goal of the Trapper Bunkhouse Land Stewardship Project where BEMRP is conducting research to document the ecological effects as well as the effectiveness of fuel treatments in the wildland-urban interface.
