View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Landowners and managers, municipalities, the logging and livestock industries, and conservation professionals all increasingly recognize that setting prescribed fires may reduce the devastating effects of wildfire, control invasive brush and weeds, improve livestock range and health, maintain wildlife habitat, control parasites, manage forest lands, remove hazardous fuel in the wildland-urban interface, and create residential buffer zones.

In this practical and helpful manual, John R. Weir, who has conducted more than 720 burns in four states, offers a step-by-step guide to the systematic application of burning to meet specific land management needs and goals.

Review:

Well written with over 90 photos, Conducting Prescribed Fires is a great text covering all aspects of prescribed fire. --Fire Ecology 2010 6:115

In his book Weir takes this big-picture approach and thoughtfully addresses virtually every facet
of prescribed fire management,..
--from Rangelands 32:74 Dec 2010 Ray Guse, Prescribed Fire Specialist, The Nature Conservancy, Victoria, TX, USA

With Conducting Prescribed Fires, John Weir makes a strong effort to fill a gap in our wildland fire management literature. --from Fire Ecology 6:115 Brian P. Oswald, Stephen F. Austin State Univeristy
