Webinar - Effectiveness and Longevity of Fuel Treatments in Coniferous Forests Across California


Presenters: Nicole Vaillant and Erin Noonan-Wright, USFS-WWETAC and USFS-Wildland Fire Management RDA

Longevity of fuel treatment effectiveness to alter potential fire behavior is a critical question for managers preparing plans for fuel reduction, prescribed burning, fire management, and forest thinning. We will present findings from a region-wide fuel treatment effectiveness monitoring study that was initiated in 2001 across many National Forest in California, which includes site specific data for pre-treatment and up to 10 years post-treatment in conifer dominated systems treated with either prescribed fire or mechanical methods. Specifically, we will present information pertaining to treatment effects on fuel loads and forest stand structure, and potential fire behavior over time.
