Presented by the US Forest Service, this training film seeks to educate its audience about the use of prescribed burning in forest management. In an attempt to control a fuel source, such as pine needles and flammable brush, experienced foresters use fire to prevent larger, more destructive fires. The film breaks down the weather and terrain conditions that determine whether or not prescribed burning is the right tool. The procedures and plans that go into forest management are extensive, and this film strives to clarify one major component.
