Statistics provided by the Forests, Range and Watershed Management Organization show that the area of wildfires in forests and woodlands during the first quarter of the current Iranian year, which began on March 21, has noticeably declined compared to the same period last year.
Reza Bayani, director of engineering and studies office at FRWO said in the first three months of the current year (March 21-June 21), some 400 hectares of forests burned throughout the country, which marks a 72% decrease compared to last year's spring, IRNA reported. 
"This is thanks to the comprehensive schemes to combat wildfires in northern and western forests, together with measures to improve crisis management in the event of an incident," he said.
