The Gila National Forest is considered a frequent-fire forest. It is a forest which consists of dry mixed-conifer and ponderosa pine which has historically experienced frequent, low-intensity fire. Creating a management strategy that will increase the resistance and resiliency of the Gila National Forest is part of the current and future planning of this forest.

In alignment with that strategy are the restoration accomplishments of Fiscal Year (FY) 2017:
· Over 14,000 acres of prescribed burning was accomplished in both non-wildland urban interface and wildland urban interface areas. This was accomplished with the assistance of many partners.
· Over 68,000 acres of land were treated with wildland fire.


The end result of this restoration work will be a more fire-resilient forest for future generations.
