The Mid-Continent Division of Georgia-Pacific Corporation uses prescribed fire extensively as a cultural tool in loblolly-shortleaf pine management in the Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi region. Fire is used for fuel reduction, site preparation or brush control in areas that foresters determine by ground reconnaisance are best suited for the treatment. Considerable care and planning burns is involved in coordinating with other operations, preventing damage by scorch and in smoke management.
