Forest fire burning forest debri and trees.

Selected Wildfires

Each selected wildfire analyzed burned more than 1,000 acres of forestland (land that grows trees) on national forest in California. For each fire there is a summary table of the vegetation conditions; an image of the fire overlaid on a quadrangle map with the image highlighting the fire boundary and burned areas that are non forest, forested and deforested; and a pdf of the fire for download which also provides a clearer view of the fire.

Table Key
Code Meaning
Selected Most of the acreage burned in a given year is explained by fires larger than 1,000 acres. Fires were selected for analysis if more than 1,000 acres of forestland outside wilderness burned.
Not Selected These fire were not analyzed because less than 1,000 acres of forestland outside wilderness burned.
