Title: DB Cooper fuel reduction demonstration project decision memo
Author: Mt. Hood National Forest (Agency : U.S.)
Abstract: The fuels reduction treatment would include removing smaller diameter trees and reducing the overlap of overstory trees to 45 percent canopy cover; reducing ladder fuels to lower the probability of torching and crowning; and either piling and burning or mechanically treating fuels with methods such as slash busting or grinding. A second entry of pile burning would reduce the fuel loadings to approximately 10 tons per acre and reduce the fire hazard to a moderate/low category.
Description: 11 pp. Map. The area proposed for fuels reduction treatment lies within the 2723 acre Tilly Jane watershed on the foothills of the north side of Mt. Hood. The stands proposed for treatment are adjacent to Forest Road 3512, near the Cooper Spur ski area. Captured March 6, 2009.
