Fire restores the health and vigor of native vegetation, reduces weeds and exotics, enhances wildlife habitat, removes biomass cost-effectively, increases plant diversity, releases nutrients vital to new plant growth and reduces the risk of wildfires.
We have conducted safe, successful burns annually on parcels of all types, including private lands, corporate grounds and public sector properties. Burns are typically scheduled in spring or fall. Key ingredients include temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind, wildlife nesting patterns, plant growth cycles, necessary state and local permits and coordination with nearby property owners.
Where there is fire, there is usually politics. PRI will work with local fire officials and the DNR to obtain the necessary burn permits and variances. Our outstanding reputation means that we can normally get permits even if burning restrictions have been issued. Your local fire authority becomes the final and dominant decision maker for each burn. Often times sites will need to be inspected by your fire official before a permit can be issued. Permit fees are also necessary in many communities.
Fire management is not a job for amateurs, but must be in the hands of responsible, experienced, well-trained professionals using safe, modern equipment, including reliable water delivery systems. PRI should be your “go to” company for experienced, successful prescribed burning.
