Southern Case Study: Fire Management
Planning in Georgia
You are a fire management officer for a forest reserve in south central Georgia. As part of your prescribed burn planning, the forest supervisor has requested an assessment of the fuel characteristics and a fire hazard survey in an area of the district near second homes and cabins.
The common fuelbed is a longleaf pine with turkey oak component with some palmetto shrub and wire grass cover. The site has not been burned for 5 years.
Use the Natural Fuels Photo Series volumes to estimate fuel loadings and other characteristics of this site.
Note: These site photos show the site during leaf-on for turkey oak (left) and a leaf die-back (right).
