This field guide was created after extensive fire restoration implementation and monitoring throughout the state of Colorado. The techniques described have been tested and found successful in burn scars including those resulting from the 2002 Hayman Fire and the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire. This handbook is not intended to be an exhaustive guide to fire restoration techniques, but rather a resource for implementing the most common techniques. "
This handbook is a collaboration of the Coalition for the Upper South Platte, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, and the Rocky Mountain Field Institute.
