Abstract or Summary
  • Fire regimes across the western United States have been altered due to past land management and changing land use. Mitigating increased risks of wildfire occurrence in landscapes such as central Oregon requires landscape level management from both governmental and private organizations. Non-industrial private forest (NIPF) owners manage a relatively small area, but they are an extremely diverse group of land managers in Oregon and predicting their management decisions has traditionally been difficult. Encouraging NIPF owners to address increased fuel loads, a primary goal in reducing wildfire risk, must occur to reduce wildfire risk at a landscape scale. With the recent creation of LandTrendr, a Landsat image processing program, land managers can locate recent fuel treatments across a landscape with relative ease and limited resources. This approach to identifying fuel treatments, in addition to a logistic regression models created from survey data, are used to investigate the spatial correlations among treatment locations, wildfire risks, and the estimated costs of fuel treatments on NIPF parcels in central Oregon.
