Description

Recreation is of increasing importance in forest environments. Fire has both short-term effects, trail closures, smoke impacts; and long-term effects, residual 'scars,' potential hazards, on forest recreation. The general public is gaining sophistication in understanding forest fires. Fire managers must educate themselves concerning public response and fire knowledge.
