    Description

    Extensive forested areas have received fuels treatments in recent decades and significant funding is available for additional treatments in an attempt to mitigate undesirable high wildfire intensities and impacts. Fuel treatment successes and failures in moderating fire behavior and effects can be found in quantified and anecdotal reports. Questions remain about the efficacy of biomass removal projects for modifying wildfire characteristics such as; (1) Do wildfires respond to fuel treatments differently under different fire weather? (2) Are fire behavior changes within fuel treatments frequently due to suppression activity? (3) Are conflicting reports of treatment effectiveness often due to contrasting types of treatments?
