Fire may be the best Rx for your land
No doubt about it — a wildfire can destroy property and threaten life, especially if it strikes in an overgrown or unmanaged forest. However, the careful use of prescribed fire can actually improve your land's health, as well as protect life and property. Use the NRCS guidelines under MDC Applications to become familiar with the basics of conducting a safe, successful prescribed burn.
