Description: In the northern Rocky Mountain region a high degree of protection from fire is necessary to perpetuate forest yields and communities industrially dependent upon them. On rugged and inaccessible areas a green, healthy forest cover is needed for recreation, erosion control, and regulation of water resources. Immense conflagrations continue to challenge the forester. In this and other forest regions of the United States fire conditions have been analyzed and the analyses have been made the bases of systematic planning to reduce burned acreage.
