Title: Video Documentation of Fuel Treatment Practices in Black Hills, Front Range, and Southwestern Ponderosa Pine Forests

Project Proposal Abstract: The purpose of this project is to acquire a library of video images of various fuels treatment equipment and activities being utilized in ponderosa pine forests in the Black Hills, Colorado Front Range, and southwest to augment the photos and descriptions published in RMRS GTR-198, the summary report for JFSP Project 05-S-03, Best Management Practices for Fuels Treatment in Ponderosa Pine Ecosystems in the Black Hills, SD and southwestern United States. Video images of fuels treatment activities and equipment will provide viewers a greater understanding of how a particular fuels treatment is accomplished and insight about the advantages and limitation of a particular treatment that cannot be presented in a publication format. Such images will also be useful in operations planning and safety training of field personnel and helpful in informing stakeholders as to what to expect during a particular fuels treatment activity.
