Cover: Prescribed burning helps to reduce fuels on the forest floor, clear dense understory vegetation and increase diversity in forests. Controlled fires and mechanical treatments can greatly reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire. In the cover photo, Darrik Carlson, a research assistant at UC Berkeley’s Blodgett Forest Research Station in El Dorado County, measures the height of the charred bark on a 100-year-old mature tree after a prescribed burn.
