    A longer, hotter, and drier fire season is projected for the Pacific Northwest under future climate scenarios, and the area burned by wildfires is projected to increase as a result. Fuel treatments are an important management tool in the drier forests of this region where they have been shown to modify fire behavior and fire effects, yet we know relatively little about how.   In the Pacific Northwest, climate models indicate that average summer temperatures will warm later in this century by degrees to degrees compared with the last half of the 20th century.
