Best Practice Burning Workshop- 6th February 2013

January 3, 2013

Burning as a management tool can be traced back many centuries, whether on heather, acid grasslands or bogs. The practice was carried out to produce fresh grazing for livestock and, by the beginning of the nineteenth century, increases in sheep grazing and, more importantly, grouse shooting led to an intensification of moorland management by fire. Today burning is seen as an integral approach to how these habitats are managed for a range of commercial, ecological or wildlife objectives.  This workshop will provide an introduction into why burning should be practiced and best implemented.
