Topic: Developing a Prescribed Fire Needs Assessment

Guests: Joshua Cohen, Helen Enander, & Clay Wilton; Michigan Natural Features Inventory

"Natural resources agencies currently invest a significant amount of resources developing prescribed burn plans. However, many proposed burns are never implemented, and the current burn system does not systematically evaluate all stands. Given that funding for implementing prescribed fire is finite, it is imperative that proposed burns be informed by the best available ecological information. Through this project, Michigan Natural Features Inventory (MNFI) has worked in conjunction with Michigan Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division staff to develop a prescribed fire needs assessment for WLD managed lands in Southern Lower Michigan. This prescribed fire needs assessment model can be extrapolated for other agencies and other fire-dependent geographies."
