Record updated:

This assessment of Montana used data collected from Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) plots across Montana and summarized by forest type, density, and structure. The focus of the analysis was on ponderosa pine/Douglas fir/ dry mixed conifer forests that had historically seen low-intensity fires. Applying the Fire and Fuels Extension to the Forest Vegetation Simulator crown fire hazard was modeled and two fire hazard reduction approaches, a thin from below approach and a comprehensive ecologically based treatment were evaluated.
