AZ PRESCRIBED FIRES | Coconino NF | Restoration Projects

The following projects have either taken place or are scheduled in the future, weather dependent.


The purpose of prescribed fires is to restore the forests that are in a fire-adapted ecosystems which need frequent low-intensity fire to remove accumulated smaller fuels and recycle nutrients back into their soils to promote health vegetation and wildlife habitat.

No machine can take its place.

When there is a healthy forest, firefighters and communities in fire prone areas can be reassured it is much safer.
