From the introduction letter ... 'This publication deals with fire, a significant force in the forest environment. Depending upon land management objectives for a specific area, plus a host of environmental variables, fire will sometimes be an enemy, at times a friend, and frequently its effects will be mixed between the two extremes. As a minimum, forest fire's potential will have to be dealt with in all land use plans and subsequent programs.'
