With support from the National Fire Plan and building on work supported by the Joint Fire Science Program, scientists at the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station have developed a modeling framework, grounded in Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plots, for estimating biomass availability, financial returns and fuel treatment efficacy associated with a range of silvicultural prescriptions and price assumptions. The analytic framework, dubbed FIA BioSum, has been applied to over 1,000 FIA plots spanning three million acres of federal and private forestland in southwest Oregon?s Klamath ecoregion.
