Prescribed Burns

Our staff provides expert services for planning/implementing of prescribed burns for control of invasive species and rejuvenation of wildlife habitat. There are many benefits from a controlled fire such as include increasing forage for grazing wildlife that rely on new vegetation to retain a thriving population, minimizes the spread of pest insects and disease, removes invasive species that threaten native species from flourishing in a vulnerable ecosystem, and can also protect civilian communities by reducing the risk of hazardous conditions from natural wildfires.

Prescribed Burn Planning:

  • Evaluation of site risks to structures, property, and historical/cultural resources
  • Planning and clearing of burn boundaries in manageable sizes to prevent fire spread beyond boundaries
  • Prevailing wind and weather condition planning
  • Staging of wildfire control equipment and manpower
