    Description

    The acreage of land burned annually in the Appalachian region has increased steadily over the last thirty years, with the rate of increase nearly doubling in recent years (Lafon and others 2005). Projected increases in fire activity in the southeast due to climate change strongly suggest the area of recently burned land in the southern Appalachian Mountains is likely to continue increasing (Bachelet and others 2001).
