Prescribed Burns and Fire Suppression


Primus Forestry has extensive experience in managing and implementing prescribed burns ranging from small to large scale projects.  We work in cooperation with local, state, national and non-profit agencies including The Nature Conservancy, St. John's River Water Management Project and the US Forest Service and the Division of Forestry in Florida.

Fire is a natural part of both forest and grassland ecology and a controlled fire is an important tool in forest health management. The protection offered by controlled burns can be invaluable when wildfire threatens.

Controlled burning can reduce fuel buildup and decreases the likelihood of serious hotter fires as well as stimulate the germination of forest trees, thus renewing the forest.
