"Prescribed burns help manage unwanted vegeta- tion, improve access into the stand and enhance wildlife habitat," Kushla said. %Vildlife species will respond differently to the frequency and intensity of prescribed burning. '%'ery frequent fires one or two years apart will fa- vor small game birds, such as bobwhite quail, whereas moderately frequent fires two to four years apart fa- vor Eastern wild turkey," he added. "White-tailed deer are more habitat gen- eralists and favor most any regular prescribed burning program." When using prescribed fire for a wildlife habitat objective, conduct under- story burning only during the winter. Many wildlife species breed in the spring, and a prescribed burn at this time could be counter- productive to wildlife popu- lations. An additional use for pre- scribed burning is for land- owners who sell pine straw. "It is important to have clean straw, free of sticks and cones," Kushla said. "For successful pine straw operations, vegetation control with herbicides in the fall, followed by a pre- scribed burn in the winter, will allow a cleaner pine straw harvest the following year." Scheduled fires also re- duce unwanted vegetation. "In upland oak forests, fires are used to limit the spread of species like winged elm and red maple," Alexander said. "This opens up space and increases light, which, in turn, helps oaks grow better. These fires also remove leaf litter from the ground, prepar- ing a better seedbed for acorns. Removing fire-sen- sitive species is important for wildlife that need more open growing conditions." People have no control over some elements that contribute to wildfires, such as dry, windy days. Howev- er, more often than not, hu- man error and neglect are factors. "Obtaining a burn permit from the Mississippi For- estry Commission pri6i~ to timber or agricultural burn- ing can help prevent mis- takes. Landowners should check for burn bans before outdoor burning, including campfires and trash burns," Alexander said. "Sparks can also originate from chain- saws, cigarettes, hot equip- ment parts and dragging vehicle chains." Campers also have a part to play. Keep campfires small and clear of nearby vegetation that could catch fire. Burn only natural ma- terials and not rubber or plastic. "If possible, create a fire- break of gravel or bare dirt around the fire," Alexander said. "Never leave a camp- fire unattended, and make sure the fire is completely extinguished before leav- ing." Building with fire-retar- dant designs and materials, keeping roofs and gutters clean of fallen leaves and pine needles, and maintain- ing watered and mowed lawns are just a few basic ways people who live near forestland can protect their homes from being damaged by wildfires. "Plant low vegetation with succulent leaves, such as shrubs, and use mulch- es that are less fire prone, such as stone," Kushla said. "Mark your street num- ber on the curb in reflec- tive paint so emergency responders can find your home in the dark." The Mississippi Forestry Commission offers a Fire- wise educational program to help homeowners and com- munity leaders understand how to protect homes and communities from wildfires. This program offers tips on design, construction and landscaping techniques. For more information, visit http://mfc.ms, gov/forest- protection/firewise. HELP STOP THE TRASH!
