|A slow-moving controlled burn|
Certified Prescribed Fire Manager Mark Musselman began the fire around ten a.m. but humidity levels and early green up kept the flames moving very slowly until closer to noon. Around that time e wind became WSW wind became a little more steady and the humidity dipped to where the fire carried through the young longleaf pine tracts that were selected for the thermal pruning. This area is under the management of the Audubon efforts in South Carolina and those wishing to volunteer to help in future endeavors can click Beidler Forest to learn more.
