Lands & Forests Consulting has combined their forestry expertise and professional prescribed burn experience into an integral prescribed burn service. This applies prescribed burning in ecological, silvicultural and wildlife management restoration applications.
Lands & Forests Consulting has available a well equipped professionally trained team experienced in the aspects of prescribed burn planning. Fire intelligence, behaviour, communications, ignition, suppression and safety are all included in our professional prescribed burn plans.
We successfully carry out many ecological and silvicultural burns in Southern Ontario each year. The remnant oak savanna and tall grass prairie habitat is a unique, yet threatened vegetation community. Lands & Forests Consulting is dedicated to the recovery of these significant ecosystems.
Initiating controlled burns of certain areas has revitalized and encouraged regeneration of provincially rare endangered oak savanna and tall grass prairie, its plant community and the ecological recovery of endangered habitat.
The resulting positive effects of Prescribed Burns in these parks are spawning new Toronto Park initiatives, which will bring many years of successes in the restoration of Toronto’s endangered Oak Savanna lands.
We use Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources prescribed burn planning methods, are fully insured and are very cost competitive.
Our staff consists of qualified Burn Bosses and trained personnel for plan development, plan execution and site evaluation. Slash pile burning operations, hazard reduction and silvicultural burns can also be arranged.
