Fuels Management

Fuels Management The Vernal Field Office fuels management team provides expertise in the design, planning, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of long-range measures to reduce the risk of hazardous fuels and to restore ecosystems to conditions representative of a more historic fire regime.  Hazardous fuels treatment projects throughout the Vernal Field Office may be designed for Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas, important wildlife habitats, areas with invasive species such as tamarisk or cheatgrass, range projects, and for other resource needs.  Treatment activities can include prescribed fire, mechanical cutting, herbicide or biological application, seeding.
