Description: The results of a survey concerning National Forest System prescribed burning activity and costs from 1985 to 1995 are examined. Ninety-five of one hundred and fourteen national forests responded. Acreage burned and costs for conducting burns are reported for four types of prescribed fires slash reduction; management-ignited fires; prescribed natural fires; and brush, grass and rangeland burns. Rankings of importance are presented for 9 resource enhancement targets, 14 potential barriers to burning, and 12 factors influencing burning costs. Survey responses concerning the presence and impact of Class I and nonattainment air quality areas are discussed. Anticipated burning levels over the next 10 years and burning levels needed to achieve desired management goals on National Forest System lands are also presented.
