Title: Restoring fire-adapted ecosystems: proceedings of the 2005 national silviculture workshop

Author: Powers, Robert F., tech. editor.

Date: 2007

Station ID: GTR-PSW-203

Description: Many federal forests are at risk to catastrophic wild fire owing to past management practices and policies. Mangers of these forests face the immense challenge of making their forests resilient to wild fire, and the problem is complicated by the specter of climate change that may affect wild fire frequency and intensity. Some of the Nation’s leading scientists and practitioner present approaches in tackling the problem.

Key Words: wild fire, fuel management, thinning, climate change, fire history, resilience
