Using models to provide a virtual test of forest treatments


Sullivan, Janet; Hyde, Kevin. 2007. Using models to provide a virtual test of forest treatments. In: Eco-Report. Missoula, MT: Bitterroot Ecosystem Management Research Project: 4.

BEMRP's participation in the Bitterroot National Forest's proposed Trapper Bunkhouse Land Stewardship Project (Trapper-Bunkhouse Project) consists of two parts. One is the field study mentioned elsewhere in this ECO-Report that is looking into the effects of thinning and burning on various resources. The other part involves modeling to determine where treatments should take place both from a fuel reduction and economic standpoint.

Keywords: BEMRP, Bitterroot Ecosystem Management Research Project, thinning, burning, modeling, fuel reduction, forest treatments
