Description: A significant increase in fuel management treatments is underway as the Forest Service and other natural resource agencies implement the National Fire Plan (USDA USDI 2001), the Healthy Forests Restoration Act (GAO 2003; HFRA 2003), and the President’s Healthy Forest Initiative (Dombeck and others 2004; Graham and others 2004; Stephens and Ruth 2005). One of the four goals of the National Fire Plan Comprehensive Strategy is to reduce hazardous fuel, thus potentially decreasing the risk of severe wildfire and modifying fire behavior so that some wildland fires may be more readily and safely suppressed (Graham and others 2004; USDA USDI 2002).

Keywords: cumulative effects, watershed, wildfire, fuel management, water quality, soil erosion
