Prescribed fire policy barriers: Findings from a JFSP project

November 27 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Computer monitor with triangular play button on the screen

Access recording. USU Forestry Extension and the Southern Rockies Science Network present this special webinar: Prescribed fire is an essential management tool for restoring and maintaining fire-dependent ecosystems; however, land managers are unable to apply prescribed fire at the necessary levels. Past surveys have identified a range of policies and regulations that managers say limit their ability to conduct prescribed fire. We are conducting a project investigating barriers to prescribed fire across the West for the BLM and the US…

Burning piles- Effects of pile age, moisture, mass, and composition on fire effects, consumption, and decomposition

November 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Access recording. Millions of acres of fuels reduction treatments are being implemented each year in the fire adapted forests of the US. Typical these fuel reduction treatments target small diameter trees for removal producing large amounts of unmerchantable woody material and elevating surface fuel loadings. Often this material has no market value and is piled by hand or with heavy machinery and burned on site. We studied replicated experimental pile burns from two locations (Wenatchee, WA and Santa Clara, NM)…
