We have been developing wildland fire management plans for over 15 years, and our partners contribute many decades of expertise in this field. Tierra Data staff have performed research in many aspects of vegetation and soil recovery after fires, and we provide expertise in fire behavior modeling using the latest FARSITE and BEHAVE software applications. Our monitoring services include fire treatment effectiveness, and fire effects. We ensure compliance with federal, state, and local fire policy and the National Fire Plan.

As part of the County of San Diego Multiple Species Conservation Program (MSCP) Subarea Plan, Barnett Ranch is in the open space reserve system for the purpose of preserving sensitive resources. Tierra Data developed a Wildland Fire Management Plan consistent with Area Specific Management Directives for using the property as a biological reserve and for restoring habitat for MSCP target species.
Tierra Data developed a Wildland Fire Management Plan for Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and mapped fires on Base for many years. As part of the adaptive management foundation for fire management at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, a program of field studies was designed to address data gaps and challenges associated with the effects of wildland fire on sensitive natural resources. Tierra Data was contracted to conduct the fire studies, which included habitat recovery, soil seed bank, soil erosion and streambank cross-section work.
