Title: Fuel Treatments in Mixed-Pine Forests in the Great Lakes Region: A Comprehensive Guide to Planning

Project Proposal Abstract: Fuel management decisions are made within a larger context of resource management characterized by multiple objectives including ecological restoration, wildlife management, commodity production (from timber to less traditional forest products), and provision of recreation opportunities and amenity values. Implementation of fuel treatments is strongly influenced by their perceived influence on and compatibility with overarching management objectives. In some cases these objectives may be complementary (e.g., prescribed fire may improve habitat conditions for the Kirtland
