SUIWER MOISTURE OF FOREST FIRE FUELS IN OREGON AND WASHINGTON IN MD PREVIOUS YEARS The forest fire season of in Oregon and Washington wss re- garded by fire suppression agencies as the most favorable for many yezrs. The number of fires started and area burned were, in general, less than for many years. FOREST FIRES IN WASHINGTON AND OREGON By C. S. CHAPMAN District Forester l District 5, U. S. Forest Service THE summer of was conspic­ uous by lack of rainfall. Early in the spring the snow left the mountains of eastern Oregon and Washington, where it usually lies until illuch later, and those who could read the signs predicted a dry summer. Prescribed forest burning reduces forest fuels. By reintroducing periodic fire to fire-adapted landscapes, it has also been shown to reduce the potential for high-intensity wildfires and the huge volume of smoke produced by them. Fire suppression is safer, more effective and costs less in areas with a recent history of controlled burning.

Live fuel moisture is the amount of water contained in a living plant expressed as a percent as opposed to the moisture of dead plant material (usually found on the forest floor). The amount of moisture in a living plant plays a pivotal role in how well a plant will burn OR will not. Most of Florida’s native species also have oils and resins. comparison with midsummer fuel. moisture conditions in other years (table 1).

This paper synthesizes understanding of the potential effects of changing climate and fire regimes on Pacific Northwest forests, including effects on disturbance and stress interactions.
