The Longleaf Alliance’s
Fire & Longleaf F201
Florida Forest Service
This 2 1/2-day course is designed for landowners and natural resource professionals of all experience levels interested in the use of prescribed fire in longleaf pine forests. The goals of this course are to develop lifelong students of fire and to educate land managers about longleaf- specific considerations when planning a prescribed burn.
Participants are highly encouraged to pursue the certified burner process in their home state in conjunction with taking Fire & Longleaf:F201.
Topics will include:
fire ecology • smoke management techniques
fire in young longleaf • fire weather parameters
ignition patterns • returning fire to long-unburned stands
fireline tools • burn planning
Weather permitting, we will incorporate a live fire demonstration to give students the opportunity to observe and participate in a prescribed burn.
