2 Introduction My goal with this project was to place fires on the Chequamegon National Forest, WI in the model FARSITE in different habitats and to vary the timber harvesting amounts and patterns with the model HARVEST to see if changing the landscape structure would affect how far the fires would spread in 15 days.

8 Jack Pine Barrens Habitat Characterized by FARSITE as surface fuel that is brushy, up to 2 feet high. Jack Pine can grow on sand left behind by the glaciers. The sand barrens in Michigan have Jack Pines that are the only habitat of the Kirtland’s Warbler. Kirtland's Warbler An endangered species that requires Jack Pine habitat. Back to outline
