Prescribed Fire Review and North Area Decision Making Process

Prescribed Fire Review and North Area Decision Making Process

This project will create a better understanding of where prescribed burning activities are, and are not, suitable given the diverse range of socioeconomic and ecosystem values in northern BC. It’s recognized that some values may conflict with prescribed burning activities as an ecosystem restoration tool in northern BC. This project will address this divergence by compiling and applying pertinent ecological literature at appropriate scales to inform the overall decision-making process for prescribed burning. The project will review the northeast decision-making process for prescribed fire in relation to the literature review. The primary product of this project will be a structured decision-making tool that will serve as a guide to assess the appropriateness of prescribed burning given various landscape objectives and other values.
