Description

The geographic focus of the 'Fuels Planning: Science Synthesis and Integration' project (known as the Fuels Synthesis Project) is on the dry forests of the Western United States. Project goals include developing accessible analyses, protocols, and tools; writing peer-reviewed documents that synthesize and integrate the ecological and social science relevant to fuels treatments; and delivering these products in a user-friendly format. Target audiences include fuels management specialists, resource specialists, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) planning team leaders, line officers in the USDA Forest Service and the Department of the Interior; community leaders; and educators. Fact sheets highlighting key information and findings are part of the ongoing information program. Look for current and future fact sheets in the Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS) Research Note (RN) series: RMRS-RN-19: Overview of the Project; RMRS-RN-20: Economic Uses; RMRS-RN-21: Social Issues; RMRS-RN-22: Forest Structure and Fire Hazards; and RMRS-RN-23: Environmental Consequences.
