Description

From the Introduction: 'It is only recently, however, that prescribed burning has been introduced in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and, consequently, relatively few peple in these provinces are experienced in its use. It is for this reason that this note has been prepared-to serve as a general guide in the planning and execution of prescribed burning in the forests of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The general information contained herein will apply to most prescribed burning operations. Actual burning prescriptions are not given here; these can only be derived by applying general principles, tempered by experience, to each prospective situation.'
