Sierran forests are facing catastrophic wildfires, vast overstory mortality, extreme understory fuel loading, high vegetative density, and limited regional market options. The incorporation of fire use with fuel and density management treatments is becoming of increasing interest as a tool in the effort to restore Central Sierra forestlands.
