In an effort to gain better knowledge of prescribed fire use in the United States, NASF and the Coalition of Prescribed Fire Councils (CPFC) partnered to conduct and produce the 2015 National Prescribed Fire Use Survey Report.
This report is the second of its kind and is based on the responses from all 50 state forestry agencies.
It outlines national and regional prescribed fire activity, state prescribed fire programs, and identifies impediments limiting the use of prescribed fire. The results include all federal, state, and private prescribed fire acres for forestry, rangeland, and agricultural burning that occurred in 2014. The survey results indicate approximately 11.7 million acres were treated in 2014 with prescribed fire.
