    The Fuel Treatment Evaluator (FTE 3.0) is a web-based tool that can be used to explore the impacts of alternative thinning intensities for any forest area in the United States. This paper will explain the Stand Density Index-based prescription engine used in uneven-aged scenarios in the FTE 3.0 program and present examples of uneven-aged fuels treatment activity prescriptions that can be developed.
