    Default Meet the New Burn Boss

    Got the first controlled burns under our belt. Few more to do and lots to learn.

    Nice photo's Chris!!!! Does the fire flush some birds? Did you see any signs of nest initiation yet? I bet at times it gets a bit scary when it starts to run and you scramble to keep her contained where you want it..Looks like you had some nice breaks..

    Nice tractor you have there. Is that yours?

    You need some nice cedars out there for added fun when burning

    Nice Job.

    Blue,

    yes we usually push some critters out. And yes the fires can get downright violent sometimes depending on wind and fuel load.

    The breaks are a must have and allows us to mitigate a lot of risk.

    Nice Job.
    Got a few but they are very small. Some chinese elm too. Anxious to see how the burn takes care of them.

    New Nomex Shirt and a new drip torch!! So are those the mandatory CRP burns that I have been hearing the guys around here doing?? Sounds like some of the new CRP contracts require burning every so often.

    3car,

    with crp mid contract management you have several options to choose from of which prescribed burns could be one of them.

    That will be the day when NRCS mandates you have to burn.

    I questioned one of the local landowners around here pretty hard cause I didn't believe it either. He must be wrong and probably just wants to burn it! We got a few done the other day as well. Check out our Facebook page for the photos.

    If he signed up to have prescribed fire for his mid contract management then he would be required to burn about every 5 years.
