Introduction

This page provides information for using custom fuel models and the landscape scale fire behavior models FARSITE and FlamMap to simulate fire spread across bark beetle-affected landscapes. Two-dimensional fire growth and intensity simulations that help predict the consequences of bark beetle altered fuels on fire hazard at the landscape scale are vital to fire planners and land managers.
