Though unprecedented in La Florida, the Land of Flowers, recent prescribed burns on US 319/SR 61, Kate Ireland Parkway, in North Florida sparked enthusiasm and excitement among roadside managers, foresters, media, and the public. The high speed corridor passes for ten miles through the Red Hills Region; a rural landscape that is host to America's largest remnant of the great longleaf pine forest. The presentation describes the planning, preparation, and execution of the safe and effective use of prescribed fire along this highway. The participant will learn about prescribed burning, and how and when it can be safely and effectively used as a roadside management tool.
