Description

The mission of the Environmental Consequences team is to provide fuel treatment planners with the means to estimate the environmental consequences of proposed fuel treatment activities in the dry, interior forests of the western U.S. on: 1) air, 2) soil and water, 3) flora, 4) fauna (terrestrial and aquatic), and 5) Armillaria. Forest types considered include ponderosa pine, interior Douglas-fir, and lodgepole pine.
