Cathy, The following is the UCST rsponse to your question concerning information
on re-treatment in a fuels break area:
This is an interesting question that is not directly addressed by the SNAMP
project. In our modeling we had to make assumptions on how fuel treatments will
change over time but I currently have a student working on a PhD in my lab that
is investigating how the actual understories of shaded fuel breaks
change over the last 20 years. Her name is Linsday and she hopes to finish her
PhD by May of next year. I cant say much more about this topic until she
finishes her work.
