Orapax used controlled burning in early 2014 as an important management tool for maintaining and enhancing our hunt fields and grasslands. For thousands of years, tall grass prairies and open brushlands were kept free of trees by the occasional wildfires that cleared the landscape every two to 50 years. These fires were caused by lightning, or set intentionally by Native Americans. They had discovered that fire killed woody plants, but encouraged fruit bearing shrubs, and forage producing grasslands.
Prescribed burning recycles nutrients tied up in old plant growth and controls many woody plants and herbaceous weeds. It also improves poor quality forage, increases plant growth, reduces the risk of large wildfires, and improves certain wildlife habitat.
