Title: Photo Series for Quantifying Fuels and Assessing Fire Risk in Giant Sequoia Groves
Author: David R. Weise, Aaron Gelobter, Sally M. Haase, Stephen S. Sackett

Station ID: GTR-PSW-163
Description: Fuels and stand inventory data are presented for giant sequoia by using 18 different photos located in giant sequoia/mixed conifer stands in the Sierra Nevada of California. Total fuel loading ranges from 7 to 72 tonsacre. The stands have been subjected to a variety of disturbances including timber harvesting, wildfire, prescribed fire, and recreational use. Fire behavior predictions were made by using 10th, 50th, and 90th percentile weather conditions and the inventoried fuels information. The long-term visual impacts of the various management activities can also be partially assessed with this photo series.
Key Words: mixed-conifer, prescribed fire, wildfire, thinning, recreation, Sierra Nevada
