Prescribed Fire Series: Using Fire to Alter Plant Communities

Show Notes

On this week of the Prescribed Fire podcast series, we get down to the nitty-gritty of prescribed fire. Often times prescribed fire is thought of a as a broad brushstroke of improvement for a property. This can be true for some, but oftentimes this is when we see fire being misused.

When a landowner begins to implement fire, they should have a clear goal for what the intended result is of a fire. Ideally, what is the response, if a landowner can not answer this, then we have issues! Fire, based on its fire return interval, the season of burning, intensity, and amount of sunlight on the unit all combine to determine what the plant response will be. During the podcast, we share with you the different ways scenarios and potential fire return intervals that we would use and recommend to get a certain desired result.

We hope you learn and enjoy this podcast. Share with a landowner who is looking to improve their land for wildlife.
