    Title:Fuel treatment maintenance operations: productivity and effects on potential fire behaviour
 
    Year:2015
 
    Status:Current
 
    Researcher(s):Steven Hvenegaard (Lead)
 
    Abstract:Over the last two decades, wildfire management agencies across Canada and North America have been actively implementing extensive forest fuel treatments to mitigate the risk of wildfire. Overtime, as vegetation regrows and woody debris accumulates, the capacity of these treatments to reduce potential fire behaviour may be compromised. Fuels managers re-treat these fuel treatments to restore their original treatment condition, but fuel managers would like to have more information on productivity and on how these activities will ultimately affect potential fire behaviour.
