Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: Vegetation treatment projects for fuel reduction in riparian areas can pose distinct challenges to resource managers. Riparian areas are protected by administrative regulations, many of which are largely custodial and restrict active management. Like uplands, however, riparian areas have been affected by fire suppression, land use, and multiple types of disturbance. Also, many streamside areas are part of the expanding wildland-urban interface (WUI) or wildland-urban intermix that may be at high risk of wildfire.

Keywords: fuels management, fuels treatment, vegetation treatment, riparian areas
