Living in the Americas for thousands of years and being natural forest consultants, even the Native Americans will tell you that wildfires have been a natural part of the environment for centuries and are essential for healthy forest management. Prescribed burns, also known as prescribed wildfires, refer to wildfires that are purposely started or naturally occurring wildfires that are allowed to burn on-that benefit the forest ecosystem and reduce wildfire risk through removing combustible material from the forest floor. Chiefly, proper management of prescribed fires is imperative to any fire campaign. Unfortunately, most forest resource consultants of the modern era haven't been doing a sufficient job of this.
Given the complexity and risks associated with prescribed burning, such as damage to property, air pollution, and other detrimental effects, it is vital that certified firefighters and land management professionals understand how to enact a forest management plan properly. Unfortunately, too many professionals in the forestry industry lack experience or knowledge in handling large-scale prescribed fires. This lack of experience is explained by the status quo of modern forest fighting being complete wildfire suppression. As a result, most American forest management specialists have had little, and in many cases, no experience in conducting prescribed burns. As a result, these potential risks stated earlier are becoming an everyday reality.
Part of why there has been so much resistance to prescribed burns is because the masses and media associate wildfires with destruction so closely that the therapeutic benefits for the ecosystem are ignored and rarely mentioned. Therefore, government agencies and forestry resource consultants are often hesitant to pursue any plan that allows wildfires to spread. On top of this, there has been a lack of funding for research or education programs related to prescribed burns. This has further contributed to the lack of knowledge and experience with this type of forestry management in America.
As a result, full suppression firefighting is still the most common form of wildfire control for most wildland fires in the United States. Despite the advances in research and experts advocating for prescribed burns, most wildland firefighting still requires firefighter crews to use full suppression tactics, such as back-burning and bulldozing, even though prescribed burns can be far more effective in reducing long-term fire risk in some areas. Organizations like Wildfire Pros have government PR connections to ensure forest management plans are conducted properly and are enacting these plans regularly, saving not only the forest ecosystem but also the residents that are proximate to them.
Recently, numerous prescribed fires have become out of control due to improper and incompetent forestry management. In 2018, a prescribed burn in Arizona that was designed to help prevent future wildfires became uncontainable and went on to burn over 40,000 acres of land. This blaze resulted in costly damages and even claimed two firefighters' lives. In fact, just a few weeks from today, on March 15th, 2023, a prescribed burn in Pueblo County, CO, that was meant to benefit the locals ended up doing just the opposite when it became out of control and devastated nearly 20 acres of land before the experts could gather the forces to tame it. These are just a few instances of the many unsuccessful forest ecology and management plans by so-called experts that have destroyed property and claimed lives. Certainly not the best example of sustainable forest management. If you are one of the many who have been affected due to incompetence, the forest consultants at Wildfire Pros are your saving grace.
