Social science informing forest management — bringing new knowledge to fuels managers

Author(s): Pamela J. Jakes
Year Published: 2007
Description:

To improve access, interpretability, and use of the full body of research, a pilot project was initiated by the USDA Forest Service to synthesize relevant scientific information and develop publications and decision support tools that managers can use to inform fuels treatment plans. This article provides an overview of the work of the Social Science Core Team. Team members synthesized social science research to improve fuels management on the topics of collaboration, communicating with homeowners, assessing social acceptability, aesthetics of fuels management, and impacts of wildland fire on communities.
