Controlled application of fire to wildland fuels in either their natural or modified state, under specified environmental conditions, which allows the fire to be confined to a predetermined area, and produce the fire behavior and fire characteristics required to attain planned fire treatment and resource management objectives.
A fire intentionally set after assessing the temperature, humidity, and wind conditions. The fire is intended to burn off a buildup of vegetation.
A fire set and controlled by humans to achieve some management objective, such as improving pasture in grazing systems.
A carefully planned and authorized set and controlled fire.
A controlled fire used to meet land management goals such as reducing shrub and tree invasion or changing plant species composition toward a more desirable forage.
a controlled fire that is conducted only when a set of land management and safety standards can be met
a crucial component in prairie restoration
a deliberately set blaze to burn forest matter that could fuel catastrophic wildfires
a fire ignited and controlled by park personnel
a forest management technique of purposeful burning to eliminate buildup of flammable forest products
a managed fire conducted under a special set of guidelines for weather and safety, called a prescription, designed prior to the burn
an intentionally ignited and carefully managed fire used to return landscapes to their natural balance with fire, benefiting plant and animal species that have evolved to rely on fire for survival
an intentionally lit, low-intensity fire used by land managers to replicate natural fires
Controlled application of fire to naturally occurring vegetative fuels under specified environmental conditions and following appropriate precautionary measures. The fire is confined to a predetermined area and accomplish the planned land management objectives.
A method of getting rid of unwanted foliage from grazing areas, renewing grassy areas in the spring and also to protect communities where there is a build-up of forest litter and dead fall.
a planned, controlled fire that clears flammable debris from the forest floor.
A forest fire, started by the park's fire team, that is controlled and will prevent damage to the property of the park's neighbors. A prescribed fire is use to control the growth of woody plants, returns nutrients to the soil, and increases sunlight to low growing plants like lupine.
When the health of a forest depends on fire and it is not possible to allow the landscape to burn naturally, due to homes or buildings nearby, forest ecologists carefully manage an intentionally-lit fire.
a fire intentionally set and closely managed to produce a specific management effect. Prescribed fires are typically slow moving, cool burning, and carefully controlled to prevent escape.
A planned fire, burning with a specific purpose.
Deliberately ignited fire for the purpose of forest or prairie management, often to remove heavy fuel buildup or simulate natural cycles of fire in an ecosystem. Also called "controlled burn", even if it becomes uncontrollable.
The controlled use of fire to achieve forest management objectives. Prescribed fire can be used to reduce hazardous fuel levels, to control unwanted vegetation, improve visibility, and improve wildlife habitat.
