Description: Record suppression costs have led to a multitude of fire cost reviews and cost studies by oversight agencies, and new rules and regulations. One of the most important and elusive issues in fire management is defining the "best" amount of fuel treatments to apply to a forested landscape. Research is developing tools and information that address a wide variety of issues related to fire suppression costs and fuels management.

Keywords: values, perceptions, suppression, communities, trust, economics, sociology, anthropology, psychology
