Title: Best Management Practices for Hazardous Fuels Management in Subtropical Pine Flatwoods and Tropical Pine Rocklands

Project Proposal Abstract: We propose to develop a synthesis of best management practices for hazardous fuels management in Sub-tropical pine flatwoods and Tropical pine rocklands. We will build an expert team of scientists/managers to collect and summarize information regarding best management practices in these ecosystems. We have a two-tiered strategy: to assemble and interview fire management practitioners on what techniques are currently in use, costs associated with these techniques, and the user's opinions of the effectiveness of treatments. We will also synthesize available literature on the ecological, social and economic impacts of various treatment strategies. The deliverables will be a general technical report (GTR) published in the format of the Joint Fire Science Program template attached as Appendix 1 and a review paper published in a peer reviewed journal. The GTR will provide managers with an easy to use reference on treatment options, benefits and tradeoffs given the ecosystem of interest and the fuel problem at hand.
