Prescribed Burns in NJ (NJ Forest Fire Service), March 18th & 19th

The New Jersey Forest Fire Service conducted more prescribed burns last week before it snowed last Friday. The figure for acreage burned is mine from adding up each days burns.

A small map of New Jersey by county with a listing of counties in each of the three New Jersey Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) Divisions may be found here (scroll down a bit). A second map of New Jersey from the New Jersey Forest Fire Service shows the boundaries of the three NJFFS Divisions, with the location of each Division Section may be found here.
