Caleb Goldsmith and The Orianne Society burn team are working on private land this month, restoring a longleaf pine forest with a thick layer of duff buildup. Caleb shows us how it’s done – burning off the top layers of pine needles and leaves – without killing the trees.
This month on Lighting a Match, Caleb Goldsmith walks us through a prescribed burn prep on a private property that has a healthy Gopher Tortoise population. The Orianne Society burn team is working to clear 20-year-old growth turkey oak here to open up the canopy and restore wiregrass growth on this longleaf sandhill.
This month on Lighting a Match, Caleb Goldsmith takes us along for the ride! Take a look at what a prescribed burn looks like at The Orianne Society’s Longleaf Stewardship Center.
Caleb Goldsmith updates us from The Orianne Society’s Longleaf Stewardship Center about preparing for the upcoming fire season.
