Over much of the Southern US fire has been critical for maintaining native habitat. Natural lightning strikes and Native Americans created millions of acres of burned ground that was beneficial to wildlife. The lack of fire leads to overgrown vegetation that eventually transitions to forest.

I wanted to show some of the prescribed fires we did last year at my parents property in NE Texas. I dont have any formal training but spent countless hours reading about prescribed fire, watching videos, going on burns at different properties so I feel like I have a decent understanding of the process. Started small last February with a 4 acre pasture burn. This area was thick with native broomsedge and non native Bermudagrass. The winds were light, the humidity was good, and the burn went extremely well.

We are only 2 miles from Oklahoma and they have a great weather station network. There are three weather stations within 20-30 miles of us. They also have a prescribed fire planner where you can add your burn parameters and the closest weather station. It works great to be able to see if the weather will be good for a burn.
