Title: Landscape Analysis of Fuel Treatment Longevity and Effectiveness in the 2006 Tripod Complex Fires

Project Proposal Abstract: To successfully implement fuel reduction projects, local fire and fuel managers need information about the relative effectiveness and longevity of fuel treatments at small to large spatial scales. In a previous study (JFSP 07-1-2-13) we determined whether recent fuel treatments mitigated fire severity following the 2006 Tripod Complex wildfires. A unique opportunity exists to extend this research to a landscape analysis of 277 fuel treatments that were involved in the wildfires and span a range forest types, treatments, and time since treatment.
