Description: In the last decade, the fire management program of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, has come under closer scrutiny because of ever-rising program costs. The Forest Service has responded by conducting several studies analyzing the economic efficiency of its fire management program. Some components of the analytical models have been difficult to develop, particularly changes in the net value and output of timber caused by wildfire.

Key Words: fire effects, economies-to-scale, fire size, timber management regime
