Prescribed Burning Trailer

A trailer containing tools which supplement and assist landowners in conducting safe prescribed burning is available for rent through the Georgia Forestry Commission. The West Central Georgia Forest Landowners Association initiated the idea to provide local forestland managers with professional equipment needed to conduct safer and more efficient prescribed burns. The trailer and tools are also used at training events for private landowners.
