Fire suppression has been the dominant fire management strategy in the West over the last century. However, managers in the Gila National Forest and Saguaro National Park have allowed fire to play a more natural role for decades. In a newly published report, we summarize the effects of these fire management practices on key resources, document common challenges in implementing these practices, and provide lessons for how to address those challenges.
