For years professional foresters have prescribed low-intensity burning to enhance timber growth, and to improve wildlife habitat. However, burning, even low-intensity burning, has its liabilities. So today, many timberland owners are not willing to assume the risks. The result has been the accumulation of thick understory which, in turn, has reduced the quality of timber, making wild fires that do occur hotter and much worse for the trees. So foresters have been searching for an affordable answer. The Outdoor Underwriters Prescribed Burning Insurance Program Is Designed To Provide Landowners With A Per Burn Product Previously Unavailable In The Marketplace. Master policies can also be issued to consultant foresters and wildlife biologists who burn for multiple landowners. For timberland owners, the premium may even be tax-deductible. Now, while the weather is cool and wet, is the time to consider prescribed burning. And with Outdoor Underwriters Prescribed Burning Insurance Program, you can improve your forest and reduce your liability exposure.
