The other 351,313 acres of the Wasatch-Cache are nonforest or water (fig. 1). This report discusses forest land only. In the Wasatch-Cache, 26 percent of the total area and 23 percent of the forest land is in reserved status such as Wilderness or Research Natural Areas. Unless otherwise stated, lands of both reserved and nonreserved status are included in the following statistics. Field crews sampled 345 field plots on the Wasatch-Cache.
