Restoration and fuel hazard reduction result in equivalent reductions in Crown fire behavior in dry conifer forests

Scott Ritter, Chad Hoffman, Michael Battaglia & Theresa Jain
Over the past several decades, the management of historically frequent-fire forests in the western U.S. has received significant attention due to the linked ecological and social risks posed by the increased occurrence of large, contiguous patches of high-severity fire. As a result, efforts are underway to simultaneously reduce potential fire and fuel hazards and restore characteristics indicative of historical forest structures and ecological processes that enhance the diversity and quality of wildlife habitat across landscapes....
