It would be so helpful if towns were noted on this map - we have NO idea where any of this is in relation to where our towns are.

      I know it means jobs for forest service bureaucrats, and valuable confusion for the general public who use the forests, but why not just forget the maps place the rules over the entire forest?
      The only drawback would be you'd stop a forest fire from occurring somewhere you're guessing they're unlikely to.

        This is implemented as a result of mismanagement of the forest! Compliments of environmentalism.
