Controlled Burns - 2

May 10th, 2019



This is the same area as pictured in the Controlled Burns -1 post but after the burn.  This Cat Spring Texas ranch owner had the property under a 1-d-1 Wildlife Management plan, with the Austin County Texas Appraisal District (ACAD) https://www.austincad.org/.

The burned area now completely open to sunlight penetration which will enable new forb and browse production for wildlife management purposes. 

Check your area for a PRESCRIBED BURNING ASSOCIATION.  https://www.texasagriculture.gov/Home/ProductionAgriculture/PrescribedBurnProgram/TexasPrescribedBurnAssociations.aspx

These are organized landowner cooperatives that assist neighboring landowners with controlled burns.  They share knowledge and assistance and equipment among members.  These organizations are more efficient in their operation because they organize local support and operate within a narrow window of desired weather conditions specific to your location. With this kind of assistance you will be able to get more prescribed burning done on your land and enjoy the satisfaction of helping neighbors while reducing risk because of increased experience and training.
