ROADSIDES -- CORRIDORS WITH HIGH FIRE HAZARD AND RISK

The author stresses that fuel hazard reduction should be concentrated on the first 10 feet of roadsides; methods include machine- and hand-clearing, chemical treatment, and prescribed burning. Results of fuel reduction projects on two national forests are described and show that treatment of roadsides can greatly reduce fire incidence.
