Format

Summary
The film documents the Teakettle Experiment, a ten-year collaboration of forest managers and scientists from diverse disciplines that investigated the effects of prescribed fire and forest thinning on restoring forest health.. A century of fire suppression has significantly changed many western forests, leaving them overcrowded and susceptible to disease, pests, and catastrophic crown fires that endanger lives and property.. Experts agree that reducing fuel loads in our forests lessen the chances of forest devastation. But until the Teakettle Experiment, deciding which method for doing so remained controversial.. With a multi-disciplinary team to study the relative effects of prescribed fire and thinning, the Teakettle Experiment collected invaluable information on the benefits and detriments of each option. The result is documented in this DVD, which also contains multiple videos, resources, reference materials, instructional materials, and website links.. The principal feature on the DVD is the film, “Fire and Forest Health,” which outlines the problems in our forests, and then reveals how the experiment was conducted over ten years..
