About this book

Explains the problem of ignoring the vital role of fire in maintaining forests, and presents viable solutions. Chapters consider how forest fires burn; the effects of fire on soil, water and air; and prescribed fire and fuel treatments for different zones in the landscape.

oThis well-written book provides good reading for anyone interested in western forests, their environment, ecology and great beauty; or for someone who owns a home or land in a forested area.o --Robert D. Hook, Electronic Green Journal
