About In this study, we design and test the ability of what we call a Healthy Landscape planning approach to create more sustainable future landscape on an industrially modified 330,000-hectare area in northeastern Alberta.
The objective of this study is to quantify the historical wildfire activity levels at multiple time and space scales using a grid-based system across a western boreal landscape.
