Bark Beetles, Drought and Prescribed Fire

Forest Health

Prescribed fire should not contribute to risks of bark beetle infestations or widespread tree mortality. When a prescribed fire is planned and executed with a focus on minimizing severity and the stand has been well-managed or has a history of prescribed fire, then it does not increase risks to forest health significantly.
