Forest estimates are calculated on a per acre of forest land ore, all the forest information is located only in the area of the map labeled as forest land. Agricultural engineers from several states have compiled average values for power requirements and fuel used per acre for specific farming tasks as shown in Table 2.

The amount of flammable material that surrounds a fire is referred to as the fuel load. Fuel load is measured by the amount of available fuel per unit area, usually tons per acre. A small fuel load will cause a fire to burn and spread slowly, with a low : Kevin Bonsor.

There m² per hectare (abbreviated as “ha”), so once you determine the mean (average) number of trees per plot you can easily convert it to this unit.A few researchers have studied fuel loading across the landscape by measuring inputs and losses from decomposition.

Waldrop () used a gap model (Shugart ) to predict fuel loads on undisturbed sites on the Cumberland Plateau of East Tennessee. Fuel inputs were approximately 65% greater on mesic sites than on xeric sites based on.
