Description

'Estimates of the timber net value change and timber output change resulting from wildfre were calculated for 9828 situation-specific fire and management conditions in the northern Rocky Mountains. After slight aggregation across the less sensitive situation parameters, reference tables with estimates of net value change and timber output change were prepared for 1764 roaded situations. They are defined by timber management emphasis, cover type, productivity class, stand size, mortality class, and fire size, with adjustments for access status.
