(Olympia, WA)  --  Under a measure signed by Governor Jay Inslee, Washington will attempt to save hundreds of thousands of acres of timberland from being destroyed by wildfires.  The state lost about 380-thousand acres in 2014 and more than a million in 2015.  The legislation calls for the state Department of Natural Resources to develop a plan that might include mechanical thinning or prescribed burns, identifying 200-thousands acres of fire-prone lands and communities every two years.  Regular progress reports to the Legislature and the Office of Financial Management would be part of the forest-health assessment and treatment plan.
