Record updated:

Forests that historically burned in mixed-severity fire regimes prove difficult to manage, especially when they border homes and prized recreation areas. This management challenge was the focus of the Fuels Reduction and Restoration in Mixed-Conifer Forests of the Southwestern Crown of the Continent field trip, following the May 2014 Large Wildland Fires Conference. The field trip included presentations by researchers, managers, residents, and other stakeholders who discussed challenges and successes with collaborative fuels reduction and restoration projects in mixed-conifer forests in the southwestern Crown of the Continent of western Montana.
