Controlled Burn in Arcadia Area Starting March 12th

March 12, 2018 - Greg Grant will be conducting controlled burns on his pine savannas in Arcadia the week of March 12-16, 2018.  In addition to creating a scenic, open, park-like pine forest, regular prescribed fire reduces fuel loads decreasing the chance of catastrophic fires during the summer; controls undergrowth, diseases, and insects; and promotes wildlife habitat for deer, turkey, quail, pollinators, and pine savanna species like brown headed nuthatches, pine warblers, Bachman’s sparrow, and endangered red cockaded woodpeckers.
