There is increasing interest in using prescribed fire to restore and maintain Piedmont ecosystems dominated by hardwood species. This webinar will address several topics relevant to those using prescribed fire in Piedmont hardwood ecosystems, including the history of North Carolina Piedmont hardwood ecosystems, wildlife impacts for game and non-game species, and silvicultural considerations. This webinar is co-sponsored by the North Carolina Prescribed Fire Council, but will cover information relevant for fire practitioners in many areas of the South. Following the presentations there will be time for audience Q/A with the speakers. This webinar will be recorded.
A subsequent field tour in Central North Carolina will be scheduled once restrictions related to COVID-19 have been lifted.
