Prescribed Burning Season to Begin in NC National Forests
The agency will conduct burns on approximately 4,000 acres in the two national forests.
Prescribed burns reduce woody debris and hazardous fuels that could contribute to high-severity fires. These burns also produce healthier, more diverse and more resilient forests. Please click here to learn more.
The safety of the public and of Forest Service personnel are top priority when prescribed burns are performed.
