Description: Scientists at the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, in Missoula, MT, in collaboration with scientists at the University of Montana, are developing a tool to help forest managers prioritize forest fuel reduction treatments. Although several computer models analyze fuels and fire behavior, stand-level effects of fuel treatments, and priority planning for land management, OptFuels will be the first to integrate these into one decision support tool for strategic placement and maintenance of fuel treatments on national forests.
