Treatment of natural fuels has been carried out in support of management objectives throughout the history of natural resource management across the United States. While research activities have been conducted for over 50 years, an urgent need still exists to provide better guidance for fuel treatment research to support and improve the efficiency of planning, operational implementation, and evaluation. This package contains response data for a Natural Fuels survey sent to fuel treatment practitioners, both federal and non-federal, across the United States in the fall of 2013. There were a total of 23 survey questions dealing with the importance of fuel treatment, impediments to fuel treatment, tools and guidance, and future research. Data included in this package are summaries of responses to each question, as well as individual free-text responses. There were 711 federal respondents and 605 non-federal respondents to these surveys from all across the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska.
