Will TN Forestry Burn?

Postby PickettSFHunter » Fri Feb 10, 2017 7:43 pm

Will the TN forestry guys conduct a burn for you for a fee? I've been trying to contact our local forester but I'm not having any luck so far. Thought maybe someone here had experience. I have burn experience but this particular location requires some help and equipment so I'm willing to hire it out.

Some will, some won't. It is up to the county personnel, their staffing level, and the wildfire conditions. Can you get by with putting in hand or blower lines instead of dozer lines? What are you trying to burn?

just about 15 acres of hardwoods in the center of my property. Logging roads can be a break on 3 sides but 1 side would need a break. I have done this with a backpack blower before on small spots. Problem is, I have no help and certainly am not comfortable with that size of area alone.

They burned 50 acres of pine in our Humphreys County Tree Farm last March. They charged about $22 per acre if I remember right.
