Description: Five series of photographs display different forest residue loading levels, by size classes, for areas of like timber type (Sierra mixed conifer and Sierra true fir) and cutting objective. Information with each photo includes measured weights, volumes and other residue data, information about the timber stand and harvest actions, and assessment of fire behavior and suppression difficulty. These photo series provide a fast and easy-to-use means for quantifying and describing existing and expected residues.
Keywords: Residues, residue management, fuel hazard rating, fire behavior (forest), slash (Sierra mixed conifer), slash (Sierra true fir), residue measurements, residue surveys
