Terrie Jain, a Research Forester with the Rocky Mountain Research Station presented a webinar on the results of a recent synthesis completed by an interdisciplinary team on fuels management practices in ponderosa pine/dry mixed conifer forests. The focus of the synthesis is on dry mixed conifer forests that occur throughout the interior West, Utah, Cascade Range, Blue Mountains, Klamath Mountains, and Pacific Coast. There is substantial documentation on fire ecology and appropriate hazardous fuel management practices for pure ponderosa pine forests. The dry mixed conifer forest type, however, is less well understood, and is typified by greater productivity, complex vertical and spatial structure, diverse species assemblages, and varied fire regimes. Practices borrowed from the pure ponderosa type may be inappropriate for the different conditions presented by the PP/MC forest type. Terrie presented an overview of the synthesis and focus on results that may be applicable fuels treatments in PP/MC forests. This webinar was hosted by the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center (, the Joint Fire Science Program (, and the International Association of Wildland Fire ( It originally aired on May 22, 2012.
