Prescribed Fire Acres for Survey and Manage

 

The table below summarizes the prescribed fire acre figures you requested for the Survey and Manage EA. Column 1 and 2 contain the amount of non activity fuel prescribed fire acres accomplished on lands under the Northwest Forest Plan in Oregon, Washington and California for FY99 and FY00 to date, respectively. These figures include only those acres disturbed by prescribed fire for projects initiated on or after October 1, 1998.

The October 1999 EA assumed that 35,200 acres of prescribed fire would occur. Since only 12,338 acres were accomplished, an additional 22,862 acres could occur without exceeding what was anticipated in the EA.
