The natural fuels photo series is a set of data and photographs that collectively display a range of natural conditions and fuel loadings in a wide variety of ecosystem types throughout the Americas from central Alaska to central Brazil. Fire managers are the primary target audience of the natural fuels photo series, although the data presented will also prove useful for scientists and managers in other natural resource fields.

Volume VIII includes sites in three major fuel types in the Northeastern United States: Northeast Hardwoods, Pitch Pine, and Red Spruce/ Balsam Fir. For each site, the publication presents wide-angle and stereo-pair photographs supplemented with information on living and dead fuels and vegetation, and where appropriate, stand structure and composition within the area visible in the photographs. The sites in each volume provide a basis for appraising and describing woody material, vegetation, and stand conditions in their respective ecosystems.
