Wet prairie/pine flatwoods burn

Winter prescribed fire season is upon us. This week a burn was executed on Corkscrew. Fire is a great management tool and necessary for the flora and fauna which are fire adapted. Remember, Florida is the lightning capital of the United States and an added benefit to people of prescribed fire is the reduction of dangerous fuels that are easily combustible in a lightning storm!
