Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q.  How is The Nature Conservancy (TNC) involved in LANDFIRE?

LANDFIRE's principal partners include the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service, the U.S. Department of the Interior (US DOI), and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). TNC collaborates with LANDFIRE because the project contributes to the scientific foundation for restoring altered fire regimes and for fire and resource management in the United States. For both the Rapid Assessment and LANDFIRE National, TNC facilitated expert workshops (followed by peer-reviews) to develop reference condition models for all vegetation across the U.S. In addition, TNC trains users in the methodology and applications of LANDFIRE products. TNC will use LANDFIRE products to plan, prioritize, and monitor conservation efforts and assess threats to the conservation of fire-adapted ecosystems.
