Why Prescribed Fire - How TREX Takes Advantage of the Opportunity
Please click on the video above to watch this shortie about how the Fire Learning Network is bringing partners together to learn from each other and restore healthy forests at the same time. And share!
"Prescribed, ground-hugging fires help keep our forests healthy. They create more diversity and reduce crowded, shrubby brush that fuels wildfires. Through the Fire Learning Network, a joint project of The Nature Conservancy, the USDA Forest Service and several agencies of the U.S. Department of the Interior, conservation staff from across the United States gather to learn from each other and share expertise in prescribed fire management. With more trained fire professionals, we can put more fire on the ground and keep our forests healthy and communities safe."
