Fuel Management is the process of modifying forest and range fuels to reduce the fuels available to burn in a wildfire event. This can involve thinning out of trees, pruning branches, prescribed fire use and other best practices. The primary objective is to manage hazardous wildland fuels in and around communities and out to the landscape level, in order to reduce the potential for loss of life, property, and infrastructure. This dataset is for demonstration projects.
