Fire Effects Information System

The Fire Effects Information System is an online collection of reviews of the scientific literature about fire effects on plants and animals and about fire regimes of plant communities in the United States. FEIS reviews are based on thorough literature searches, often supplemented with insights from field scientists and managers. FEIS provides reviews that are efficient to use, thoroughly documented, and defensible. Approximately 15 to 30 new or revised reviews are published in FEIS each year. There are 3 types of FEIS reviews:

  1. Species Reviews 
  2. Fire Studies 
  3. Fire Regime Syntheses 

 

50 Fantastic Fire Science Resources

Every 23 seconds a fire erupts in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Association, and, in 2011 alone, there were over 1.3 million fires that required fire department intervention. Not only are firefighters brave, they are also very busy!

Firefighters often begin their careers by volunteering at local firehouses, joining the junior firefighter league or undergoing training through municipal fire companies. They might also choose to pursue a program in fire science, a path that could end with an associate or bachelor’s degree. The following resources are meant to help aspiring firefighters understand what the job requires, plan for the education and training they will undergo and keep abreast of the field with the latest research, publications and blogs from firefighters who are in the line of duty every day.

50 Fantastic Fire Science Resources

 

Fire Safety Guide Book

Approximately 140 students complete fire science programs every year in Arkansas at one of the state’s three accredited fire science schools. A significant number of these fire science graduates come out of the Arkansas Fire Training Academy at Southern Arkansas University Tech. Although the number of graduating fire science students is relatively low, their job prospects are wide-ranging. In addition to firefighting and fire service administration, potential career opportunities also include inspecting structures for fire safety or analyzing and investigating the causes of fires.

Fire science education in Arkansas is limited to certificates and associate degrees. Programs range in focus from fire and emergency response to fire science technology to fire services management. Degree programs explore the knowledge and skills that aspiring fire professionals need to enter the workforce, while also offering preparation for specialized career choices.

LANDFIRE Program

LANDFIRE - multi-partner wildland fire, ecosystem, and wildland fuel mapping projectLANDFIRE is a program that provides over 20 national geo-spatial layers (e.g. vegetation, fuel, disturbance, etc.), databases, and ecological models that are available to the public for the US and insular areas.

You can view and download products which are updated every two years to reflect change on the landscape over time. These data provide information for regional and national landscape strategic planning for fire and natural resource management activities.

 

Keep tabs on wildfire activity via this U.S. Geological Survey website, GeoMAC.

Point and Click to Track Wildfire Activity in the United States.  Wildfires continue to burn across much of the western United States, and 39,000 fires have scorched 5,899,245 acres this year as of August 7, 2017 according to the National Interagency Fire Center

 

Is Your Property Safe From Wildfire?
By:

Fire is an important natural process of forests and rangelands. But while fire plays an important role in the ecology of these areas, it can be devastating if homes, valuable timber, and range areas are destroyed.

 

After the Fires - Hydrophobic Soils
By:

Hydrophobic soils repel water. A thin layer of soil at or below the mineral soil surface can become hydrophobic after intense heating. The hydrophobic layer is the result of a waxy substance that is derived from plant material burned during a hot fire.

 

Lack of prescribed burns fuels rise of megafires, ASU fire historian says

 Forest Best Management Practices

   
Show Articles on Forest Best Management Practices (28)
Healthy and Fire-Resilient Forest Management by the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation
By:

This video from Washington Policy Center with cooperation from the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, sheds light on how the tribes manage forests to be more healthy using commercial harvests, thinnings, and controlled burns to deal with the pressures of insect infestation, climate change, and decades of fire suppression.

 

Forestry: Western Fires and Prescribed Fires
By:

Watch and listen to a discussion by the EarthX Conservation Forestry Panel talking about current issues on western fires and prescribed burning.

 

Small Farms and Woodlots
By:

Learn about how woodlots of today provide much more for their owners, including income from selling wood and nonwood products, forest-based income opportunities such as lease hunting and recreation, solitude and escape from emotional pressures and stress of modern living and working, and simply the pride of owning and caring for the land.

 

Controlling Invasive Species
By:

It is often difficult for landowners to cultivate desirable plant species on their property. An even more frustrating task is keeping unwanted plants at bay.

 

Forest* A *Syst

Forest*A*Syst is a self-assessment guide, designed for a national audience, with the goals of helping new forest landowners articulate their objectives in a written management plan and foster a working relationship with a resource professional who can provide them with technical assistance. The national document was intended to serve as a protocol for state forestry agencies to follow as they developed their own state-specific Forest*A*Syst document and programming. Only a few states adopted the concept and produced their own printed version of Forest*A*Syst.
  Profile Your Land

 

Developing a Forest Management Plan
By:

Whether you are an experienced woodland owner or are just starting out, there is no substitute for the guidance and direction provided by a forest management plan.

 

Pruning Your Forest Trees
By:

Pruning is removing branches of a standing tree flush with the outside of the branch collar. When pruning is done to increase income, trees that will grow to sawtimber size and quality are pruned.

 

Weeding and Thinning Young Forest Stands
By:

Weeding and thinning are forestry practices that improve forest stand quality by removing undesirable species and poor quality individuals of desirable species.

 

Landowner's Guide to Building Forest Access Roads
By:

This guide is designed for landowners in the northeastern United States who will use a tractor and ordinary earth moving equipment to build the simplest access roads on their property, or who will contract for these services.

High Grade Harvesting - Understand the impacts, know your options
By:

As a landowner, you may be approached by a logger or forester to have a “high grade” harvest of your woods, which they typically call “selective cutting.& ...

 

After the Fires - Hydrophobic Soils
By:

Hydrophobic soils repel water. A thin layer of soil at or below the mineral soil surface can become hydrophobic after intense heating. The hydrophobic layer is the result of a waxy substance that is derived from plant material burned during a hot fire.

 

Caring for Your Forest With a Forest Stewardship Plan
By:

If you own or manage forest land, you are probably concerned about keeping it productive and healthy now and in the years to come. Like many forest landowners, you may want to sustain or increase the economic value of your forest while protecting environmental assets such as wildlife and clean water.

Working Trees for Agriculture
By:

Putting trees to work in conservation and production systems for farms, ranches, and nearby communities means planting the right trees, in the right places and in the correct design to achieve desired objectives.

 

Tim's Tips - Use of Wedges
By:

The use of wedges in logging has a long history. The mechanics involved are quite simple. Depending on the height and diameter of the tree, it is possible to fell it in a direction opposite of its lean with a wedge that gives no more than one inch of lift.

 

Regenerating Hardwood Forests
By:

Managing Competing Plants, Deer, and Light.

 

Romancing the Crop Tree
By:

Foresters and  landowners alike desire alternatives to traditional silviculture techniques, and it may come as a relief to foresters and the public as well that there is an array of literature residing between the un-easy bookends of selection and clear cutting that remains to be written.

 

Prescribed Fire Associations
By:

A Prescribed Fire Association is a group of landowners and other concerned citizens that form a partnership to conduct prescribed burns. Prescribed burning is the key land management tool used to restore and maintain native plant communities to their former diversity and productivity for livestock production and wildlife habitat.

Fire Effects Information System

The Fire Effects Information System is an online collection of reviews of the scientific literature about fire effects on plants and animals and about fire regimes of plant communities in the United States. FEIS reviews are based on thorough literature searches, often supplemented with insights from field scientists and managers. FEIS provides reviews that are efficient to use, thoroughly documented, and defensible. Approximately 15 to 30 new or revised reviews are published in FEIS each year. There are 3 types of FEIS reviews:

  1. Species Reviews 
  2. Fire Studies 
  3. Fire Regime Syntheses 

 

Don’t Move Firewood

Trees are being destroyed through the transportation of invasive insects & diseases in firewood. One of the most important things we can do to protect trees is stop moving invasive pests and diseases to new areas on firewood. It’s really that simple- don't move firewood, and keep trees healthy and alive. Forests are great places to play, but they also keep our air clean and our water pure. We must protect them by not moving firewood, so our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids can enjoy these amazing places like we do.

The Don't Move Firewood campaign is managed on a day-to-day basis by The Nature Conservancy's Forest Health Protection Program staff. Don't Move Firewood as a whole was begun, and is advised, by the Continental Dialogue on Non-native Insects and Diseases. Select a state to get localized information.
