Instructions for establishing fire-weather stations in Region 5 have usually specified that the fuel-moisture indicator sticks be placed over a bed of ponderosa pine needles. This specification was made to insure uniform ground-cover effect for all stations. Because ponderosa pine needles are not readily available in all areas of California fire control technicians have often asked if pine needles must be used in preference to local litter types.
