Prescribed Fire As A Management Tool

LITTLE ROCK – Forestry and conservation agencies across Arkansas commonly use prescribed fire as a management tool during the months of February – April, when weather conditions allow. Prescribed fire achieves many management goals including enhanced wildlife habitat, improved wildfire safety and site preparation for new growth. Private, state, and federal
entities use prescribed fire as a management tool. Last year, landowners and agencies applied prescribed fire to 222,375 acres across Arkansas.
“Prescribed fire is a valuable management tool to keep forests and grasslands healthy,” says State Forester Joe Fox. “Prescribed
fires are slow-moving, and low to the ground. Prescribed fire is well planned, and executed for specific land owner goals,” he says.   MORE
