This report was prepared to provide an independent examination of the post-fire management options being considered for the Biscuit Fire (2002) within the Siskiyou National Forest in southwestern Oregon. This report has three main objectives: 

  1. summarize the ecological setting and impact of the Biscuit Fire
  2. review the scientific literature on post-fire management (including salvage logging)
  3. conduct a GIS-based mapping analysis that examines the ecological and administrative constraints to post-fire management of the Biscuit Fire

Detailed information for the Biscuit Fire can be found at the official US Forest Service Biscuit Fire website.
