    As part of a recent synthesis addressing fuel management in dry, mixed-conifer forests we analyzed more than 5,000 Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plots, a probability sample that represents 33 million acres of these forests throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, and extreme northern California. We relied on the BioSum analysis framework that integrates several models to evaluate the economics of treating fuels by using 13 different mechanical fuel treatments per plot. We are extending this analysis to explore the carbon dynamics associated with these fuel treatments and to share a conceptual model and preliminary results.
