“Prescribed Fire” can actually improve wildlife and pine forest health – Farmweek – December 2, 2011

Lumberton, Mississippi. Orby and Brenda Wright were honored in January 2010 with the “Outstanding Wildlife Conservationist Award” by the Mississippi Association of Conservation Districts. Some find it hard to believe that “fire” is one of the tools the Wrights use on their property. Farmweek visited the Wrights when a “prescribed burn” took place. It actually improves wildlife habitat in the Southern Pine Tree ecosystem. Russ Walsh, interviewed in this video, is a member of the National Bobwhite Technical Committee (NBTC) and on the NBTC Ad-hoc Prescribed Burn committee Reporter: Artis Ford.
