FOR 318 - Fuel Treatments And Modeling

Description: Fire is an important component of many forest ecosystems that has been suppressed since the early 1900s. These same forests now have an abundance of available fuels and high tree densities, leading to high fire hazards. This course will briefly cover the history of fire management in the United States and a sample of forest types in which fuel treatments may be necessary. Much of the content will delve into the variety of fuel treatments available, along with their success and ecological effects. Letter grade only.
