The intent of the Arizona 2018 Invasive Plant Treatment Prioritization (IPTP) analysis is to:
- Rapidly and strategically assess Arizona’s invasive plants management data
- Use data to inform DFFM future priorities in Forest Health planning
- Account for existing invasive plant management efforts from local to federal level
- Keep spatial and quantitative analysis simple and transparent
- Generate summaries and geospatial products for internal and public dissemination
The analysis and products will inform future DFFM priorities for program delivery and may be used directly by communities for their management needs.
Note: Arizona-wide top priority areas are not necessarily more important for management decision making than local high priority areas within communities, watersheds, road and drainage reaches, and within ecological regions.
