Prescribed Fire Series: How To Burn in the Timber

Prescribed Fire Series: How To Burn in the Timber

Land & Legacy  / 

Posted on February 08, 2021

Show Notes

During this week's podcast, we continue with our Prescribed Fire Series. Last week we covered all of the tools you will need to get started burning, so now that you are fully equipped, it's time to cover how to implement a fire. This week, we cover how to burn within the timber.

Some new research out of Auburn just found that a reduction of the canopy by 30% and a follow-up fire will result in a 500% increase in deer food per acre. So, now that we have your attention, it's important to burn your timber, but it should be done properly. This week we discuss the ideal conditions for burning in the timber as well as different firing techniques and how to prepare burn lines. If you've dreamed of using prescribed fire to improve your habitat, but haven't actually implemented it, then this podcast is for you!

We will take you from start to finish on how to use prescribed fire on your property. Let us know what you learned this week from this podcast! #ForLoveoftheLand
