The Huron-Manistee National Forests are implementing our spring prescribed fire projects for 2021.
Pre-planned prescribed fire projects may take place at specific locations across the forest this spring of 2021. Actual project ignition will depend upon local weather and fuel conditions. Planned projects include burning piles as well as low-intensity understory burns of vegetation on the forest floor. The main goals of these projects are to reduce the severity of future wildfires and to provide added protection for communities in the wildland urban interface. In addition, prescribed burns promote a diverse and more resilient forest and improve habitat for wildlife.
