The Sea Pines Forest Preserve Prescribed Burn Program

Prescribed burns mimic naturally occurring wildfires and aid in the forest management of the Sea Pines Forest Preserve. They help diversify the understory plant community and minimize the risk presented by uncontrolled wildfires. This practice is part of proactive land management initiatives widely used across the nation, especially in the Southeast. Planned prescribed burns in the Forest Preserve will be announced to the community ahead of time. For further information, please visit
