A rating scale of the resistance to fire would be helpful knowledge in the management of a forest in any region. The author has combined his wide knowledge of conditions with the best available information in the various regions of the United States. A comparison is made in regard to the development of scales of tolerance and of fire resistance. The need for more detailed and accurate knowledge is pointed out.
