Description: There is a recognized need to apply and maintain fuel treatments to reduce catastrophic wildland fires. A number of models and decision support systems have been developed for addressing different aspects of fuel treatments while considering other important resource management issues and constraints. Although these models address diverse aspects of the fuel treatment-planning problem, no one model adequately handles the strategic maintenance scheduling of fuel treatments while considering 1) the spatial and temporal changes of fuel treatment effects on a landscape, and 2) the economics of maintenance fuel treatments plus other operational constraints.

Keywords: fire and non-fire fuels treatments, landscape scales, models
