Summary of this growing season's burns

At Pleasant Valley Conservancy, leading up to this growing season, we burned more acres this year than ever. This includes the burns of last fall as well as those of this spring, since both burn periods occurred "after" last year's growing season. Our success was despite the challenging weather.

Why were we so successful? Advanced planning. Careful attention to weather predictions. Understanding how the weather forecasts work. Experience in how to set up burn units and fire breaks. Good personnel. Luck.
