Controlled Burning for Wildlife - Mossy Oak
A controlled burn or prescribed burn is a great habitat management tool. Controlled Burning (fire) is one of the most efficient, economical, and rewarding management tools you can use on your property. Controlled burns increase the amount of insects that are extremely important sources of protein for young quail and turkeys. Ideal burns for wildlife create a variety of burned and unburned areas that stimulate growth of new vegetation while retaining cover. After a prescribed burn, the blackened soil quickly absorbs sunlight and encourages new seed germination.
