Description: Although fuel reduction treatments are widespread, there is great variability and uncertainty in the cost of conducting treatments. Researchers from the Rocky Mountain Research Station, USDA Forest Service, have developed a model for estimating the per-acre cost for mechanical fuel reduction treatments. Although these models do a good job of identifying factors that influence the costs of treatments, individual fuel treatments are unique, and the associated costs remain highly variable. Therefore, these cost estimates should only be used as a rough first estimate.
