A Linear Programming Model for Wildland Fuel Management Planning
Abstract:A linear programming model for scheduling future investments in wildland fuel management is presented. Previous efforts at efficiently allocating fire management resources are discussed. An example is presented of the model's application to the fuelbreak system on the Angeles National Forest in southern California. Sensitivity analysis is used to address the tradeoffs between intensive and extensive investments for fuelbreak construction and maintenance. Forest Sci. 27:81-94.
