- ... Following severe wildfires, managing fire hazard by removing dead trees (post-fire logging) is an important issue globally. Data informing these management actions are relatively scarce, particularly how fuel loads differ by post-fire logging intensity within different environmental settings. In mixed-evergreen forests of Oregon, USA, we quantified fuel profiles 3–4 years after stand-replacement f ...

Most wildfires in the north-eastern US occur in the wildland–urban interface, those regions of intermingling urban and non-developed vegetated lands, where access to firefighting resources can be limited.
