Controlled Burning – By definition is, the use or application of controlled ignited fire to intentionally burn wildland fuels in either their natural or modified state under specified environmental conditions, confined to a predetermined area, and within a range of fire intensity and rate of spread that permits attainment of planned resource management objectives and is conducted in conformance with an approved burn plan.
Since our inception, we have implemented and completed over 3,000 acres of controlled burning per year
