Prescribed burn today at Ft. Jackson

Apr 25, 2011 10:23:00 AM - thestate.com
Fort Jackson will be conducting a prescribed burn of nearly 164 acres today close to Leesburg Road.

Controlled or prescribed burning, also known as hazard reduction burning, is used at Fort Jackson in forest management. Controlled burning is conducted during the cooler months to reduce fuel buildup and decrease the likelihood of serious hotter fires. Controlled burning stimulates the germination of some desirable forest trees, thus renewing the forest.
