    Description

    Long before the Secretaries of the Departments of Agriculture and Interior signed the Federal Wildland Fire Management Policy in 1995, most land and resource professionals in the United States had recognized unprecedented fuel accumulations in western forests as management priorities. The Policy, its 2001 revision, the 2003 Healthy Forests Restoration Act, and the sequence of costly fire seasons that spurred these developments made it clear that fuels reduction would remain the driving issue in forest management in the United States for the foreseeable future (Franklin and Agee 2003). The central message embedded in this policy shift is that the foregoing century of fire suppression and other management practice has disrupted the balance among land, resource conditions and values, as well as the people who rely on public and Indian lands for livelihood, raw materials, and senses of place (see Karjala and Dewhurst 2003; Moseley and Toth 2004).
