In Stock Overview North American Wildland Plants contains descriptions of the salient characteristics of the most important wildland plants of North America. Search the Plant Guide lets you query the plant database using various plant characteristics. Forested areas with heavy mortality may be modeled with SB fuel models. The text addresses the following questions about each speices: How do I recognize it?

For example, grass is often allowed to grow beneath vines or orchard trees, and wheat or similar crops are allowed to cure before harvest; in those cases, use a fuel model other than NB3. However, there are many agricultural areas that are not kept in a non-burnable condition. This second edition includes updated information about closely related or easily misidentified species, new and revised illustrations, and revised distribution maps. The heart of the book consists of species accounts, each description illustrated with a close-up photo, a habitat photo, and line drawings showing details to aid identification.

Fuel model NB3 is agricultural land maintained in a non-burnable condition; examples include irrigated annual crops, mowed or tilled orchards, and so forth.

Grass fuels can vary from heavily grazed grass stubble or sparse natural grass to dense grass more than 6-feet tall. To be called NB1, the area under consideration must not support wildland fire spread. Many invasives can be halted or slowed, and in certain circumstances even badly infested areas can be restored.

Timber Understory TU Fuels: The primary carrier of fire in the TU fuel models is forest litter in combination with herbaceous or shrub fuels. What problems does it cause?
