In order to restore forest health and reduce fuel loads, management tools like prescribed fire and mechanical chinning are being tested by forest managers in the region' s national forests.

However the public's willingness so support and accept use of these treatments on a broad scale is problematic Site visits can be a useful tool used to assess citizen’s reactions to these management : Michelle A.

Reed. ON-SITE PUBLIC EVALUATIONS ON THE USE OF PRESCRIBED FIRE AND MECHANICAL THINNING CHAPTER 1. INTRODUCTION The Blue Mountains region in northeastern Oregon and southeastern Washington is suffering from large scale insect and disease epidemics which have led to widespread decline in forest health.

A major catalyst leading to these conditions. On-site public evaluations on the use of prescribed fire and mechanical thinning. Abstract. Graduation date: The forest health of the Blue Mountains of eastern\ud Oregon and Washington has sustained great impacts primarily\ud caused by disease and insect epidemics.

In order to restore\ud forest health and reduce fuel loads, management. Empirical studies of mechanical thinning and prescribed burning for fuel reduction have found that while these treatments result in initial emissions, they have little to no long-term impact on.

We assessed tree mortality caused by bark beetles in a mixed-conifer forest in the central Sierra Nevada in response to fire and mechanical treatments. The treatments were: (1) no treatment, (2) prescribed fire, (3) mechanical (crown thinning-from-below followed by rotary mastication), and (4) mechanical followed by prescribed fire.

This damage may include the additional costs incurred for Cited by: The treatments included: (1) prescribed fire to reduce potential wildfire severity and reintroduce fire as an ecosystem process (BURN), (2) mechanical thinning and mastication to modify forest structure as a surrogate for fire (THIN), (3) mechanical thinning and mastication followed by prescribed fire to mechanically manipulate stand structure Cited by: Mechanical thinning and prescribed burning practices are commonly used to address tree stocking, spacing, composition, and canopy and surface fuel conditions in western US mixed conifer forests.

We examined the effects of these fuel treatments alone and combined on snag abundance and spatial pattern across 12 ha treatment units in central Washington by: Determining the complexity of a prescribed fire starts with understanding the on-site, off-site and 19 public and political values associated with the prescribed fire.

Values are natural resources, 20 humans and their developments, and public and political (including cultural) features that have 21 inherent worth. Prescribed fire activities include low intensity underburns and burning of hand piles.

Hand line or existing features like roads will be used to keep prescribed fire within treatment units. Noncommercial thinning activities will remove ladder fuels to a specified density depending on site.

Results indicate that there is a fairly high level of public acceptance for use of prescribed fire and that smoke, concerns about escape, and trust are key issues shaping that support.

In addition, there is a clear link between understanding of the purpose and intended benefits of prescribed fire and approval of its by: which is a basis for wilderness fire management programs. An evaluation of fire behavior and effects is essential to deciding if a fire meets land manage­ ment objectives.

A practical means for describing fire behavior and the effects of fire on the soil and vegetation is needed in fire management.

From a fire management perspective, a successful prescribed fire is one that is executed safely, burns under control, accomplishes the prescribed treatment, and attains the land and resource management objectives for the area involved. Successful pre- scribed burning requires planning.
