    Title:Effectiveness of light stand-thinning as a forest fuel treatment
 
    Year:2010
 
    Status:Current
 
    Researcher(s):Greg Baxter (Lead)
 
    Abstract:Three-metre crown spacing has led to severe blowdown along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains. This creates a large, complex fuel hazard and increases treatment costs. This project will attempt to determine whether closer inter-crown spacing is sufficient to modify crown fire behaviour. This project is one part of the Forest Fuel Treatment Study which aims to gain an understanding of the effectiveness of specific forest fuel treatments.
