Description: A technique for building pine needle fuel beds has been developed and tested which assures uniform rates of spread and independence of the builder. Five beds were constructed by each of two technicians. They were burned under identical conditions and a comparison made of the time the fires took to spread 24 inches. A t-test showed that there was no difference between the beds of the two builders (t = 0.265, 8 d. f.). For the 10 beds, the mean was 2.06 minutes, the standard deviation was 0.09 minute, and the coefficient of variation was 4.1 percent.
