Prescribed Fire Series: Fire Ignition Techniques

Prescribed Fire Series: Fire Ignition Techniques

Land & Legacy  / 

Posted on February 22, 2021

Show Notes

On the final podcast of the prescribed fire podcast series, Frank and Kyle host as they share their extensive knowledge regarding the usage of prescribed fire. Frank and Kyle go in-depth about the different ways that you can ignite a fire. The way fire moves across a landscape from residual heat, flame height, the direction of the wind all help to determine the plant response.

There are several key ways to ignite a fire. In this podcast we cover the following in-depth: Backing Fire, heading fire, ringing fire, stripping fire, and flanking fire. These different firing techniques will be used based on the changes in the terrain as well as the desired effect of the fire. A backing fire cannot produce what a head fire can, just the same as a flanking fire is different from a stripping fire.

If you ever wonder how you should be using prescribed fire to alter the plant communities growing on your property, this is the podcast for you. Enjoy.Learn.Share! #ForLoveoftheLand
