Abstract

This study evaluates where both wildfire mitigation and restoration of historic forest structure are potentially needed in the ponderosa pine-dominated montane forest zone of Boulder Country, Colorado. Two spatial models were overlain : a model of potential fireline intensity and a model of historic fire frequency. The results indicate that both wildfire mitigation and restoration of historic forest structure are needed in only a small part of the study area, primarily at low elevations
