Description: Historically, frequent, low-severity fires maintained opengrown structure of dry ponderosa pine forests (Hessburg and Agee 2003). Thus, an open forest structure may be a reasonable template for ecological restoration in those particular forest types (Allen and others 2002). In contrast, setting goals for ecosystem management and restoration targets in the vast majority of forests that are typified by mixed-severity fire, where forest structure historically varied across time and space, has proven more difficult (Halofsky and others 2011; Perry and others 2011).

Keywords: fire ecology, fire behavior, smoke management, fire management, social and political consequences
