Description: An approach is illustrated for computing expected costs of fire protection; fuel treatment; fire suppression; damage values; and percent of area lost to wildfire for a management or rotation cycle. Input is derived from Part 1, a method for collecting and classifying the total fuel complex, and Part 2, a method for appraising and rating probable fire behavior. This approach can be used locally for fire management and in land-management planning.

Keywords: Fire management, fuels (forest fire), fire behavior (forest), fire planning, management planning (forest)
