Description: Forest Service managers and researchers designed and evaluated alternative disturbance-based fire hazard reduction/ecosystem restoration treatments in a greatly altered low-elevation ponderosa pine/Douglas-fir/western larch wildland urban interface. Collaboratively planned improvement cutting and prescribed fire treatment alternatives were evaluated in simulations of disturbance processes and interactions with the partially restored wildland urban interface conditions. The SIMPPLLE modeling system was used to reconstruct historic landscape conditions across a broad range of fire regimes and to model future landscapes that reduce fire severity, restore wildlife habitats, reduce bark beetle severity; and disclose environmental effects.

Keywords: alternative disturbance-based fire hazard reduction, ecosystem restoration treatments, wildland urban interface, prescribed fire, SIMPPLLE modeling system, landscapes
