The U.S. Forest Service Spends Half Its Budget on Forest Firest

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 10, 2013 -

Last year, wildfires burned 9.3 million acres, while the U.S. Forest Service only harvested approximately 200,000 acres.  This means that 44 times as many acres burned as were responsibility harvested.  The burned areas were not allowed to be salvaged.
