Summary: 

With this project, we seek to characterize situations of increased wildfire risk in Pinus pinaster stands in Galicia, in terms of the structure of fuel complexes involved in this type of fire. Also, to propose appropriate silvicultural treatments to reduce this risk and to identify priority areas of intervention.
