Historically, nature provided all the tools needed to maintain healthy habitats of natural lands. Due to development, of exotic species and user impacts, most natural lands are overgrown. Human intervention is now needed to provide the factors necessary for a healthy habitat.

To restore and maintain the diversity of the ecosystem, prescribed fire is one of the many tools to manage conservation lands. Prescribed fire has many benefits, such as eliminating dry and overgrown vegetation, reducing the risk of wildfires, increasing seeding, fruiting and forage quality in plants, and improving wildlife habitats.

Prescribed Fire

A controlled or prescribed burn, also known as hazard reduction burning, backfire, or a burn-off, is a fire set intentionally for purposes of forest management, farming, prairie restoration or greenhouse gas abatement. A controlled burn may also refer to the intentional burning of slash and fuels through burn piles.

Fire is a natural part of both forest and grassland ecology and controlled fire can be a tool for foresters.

While other land management treatments are sometimes used, prescribed fire is the most effective, because of the complex chemical, biological and physical processes that fire stimulates.
