The use of prescribed fire today is an important restoration tool which reintroduces disturbance regime into the ecosystem. IRM and our restoration crews provide safe and responsible habitat restoration with the use of prescribed fire. IRM works closely with local fire departments and natural lands managers to coordinate these efforts.
IRM uses both broadcast burning and pile burning in restoration. Pile burning can be an effective method for managing slash from oak savanna restoration and conifer thinning.
- Perform controlled burns
- Create burn piles from previously logged sites
- Ignite new or existing burn piles
- Safely control and manage burns
- Provide administration services for all required permits
