Does anyone here have any experience? I am looking to burn about 20 acres this spring on my farm. I am beginning to plan it now. I was thinking about seeing if anyone else wants to gain some experience, we could make it a field day and have a cookout afterward.

The plan is to top kill some 3 to 4 yr old cutover to get fresh vegetation at ground level this summer and to allow the native seed bed more sunlight.

I will help out and I would like to do the same. I might only need a few small areas equalling a 3-5 acres max. Keep me updated.

Check with TWRA and the forrest service. They may be able to help you plan and maybe do the burn.

I don't have any experience but wouldn't mind helping out to gain some experience. Where is the location of the burn?

I've done it, several times, and every time it scares the living crap out of me!

That is why I could use all the help I can get. Luckily I have a bunch of logging roads to serve as fire breaks incase it gets out of control. Also, I plan on getting a dozer in to make wider breaks in other areas ahead of time. My plan is to burn this section every 2-4 years.

I will be notifying the forestry dept ahead of time and their local fire unit. They are familiar with my place since we had a wildfire a few years ago.

I'm looking to do one in Watertown. I was going to check with the vol fire dept and see if I could pay those boys to come out and give me a hand. Or make a donation to the dept. I actually called them this morning and didn't get an answer.
