VEGETATION BURNED AREA ASSESSMENT

Mandatory Consultation Requirements (baseline data sources): Consultation and evaluation of vegetation resources and Threatened, Endangered, Sensitive and Proposed plant species (TESP) impacted by wildland fire and suppression actions. As a minimum, the following sources are consulted in obtaining baseline information for developing resource issues, field inventory priorities, emergency stabilization and burned area rehabilitation recommendations:

Data Requirements: Following cursory aerial reconnaissance and the identification of vegetation resources at risk, field inventories can be conducted  to identify, map and gather data on fire related impacts to:

Data collection should include: where are values at risk located (map); how were these resources damaged (suppression VS. wildland fire); what was damaged (soils, structures, vegetative resources), how much has been damaged (acres critical habitat.).

Management Considerations: Values at risk can be evaluated and emergency stabilization and rehabilitation recommendations made within the assessment report. Management considerations include:

Specific Products: After completing field inventories and data acquisition, the assessor will prepare a written analysis report to include:
