A conservation paradox in the Great Basin—Altering sagebrush landscapes with fuel breaks to reduce habitat loss from wildfire
When considering the use of fuel breaks, land managers are often faced with a potentially paradoxical situation: the need to substantially alter sagebrush habitats with fuel breaks to ultimately reduce a greater threat of their destruction from wildfire. This report provides an initial assessment of both the potential effectiveness of fuel breaks and their ecological costs and benefits.
The DRAFT Pueblo Mountain Pilot Project Environmental Assessment (EA) analyzes several types of tools to be applied at different locations within the 26,400-acre pilot project area to attain desired vegetative conditions. The purpose of this pilot project is to test decreasing the potential for and impacts of large-scale wildfires in Harney County, specifically an area within Pueblo Mountain.
