Home to many fire-adapted ecosystems, people living in Michigan have long made use of prescribed fire as a land management tool. The use of controlled burns helps jack pine forests, oak savannas, and grasslands to thrive without worry of wildfires devastating the habitat. In fact, many of these habitats cannot persist without the presence of fire, as periodic fire helps return nutrients trapped in natural debris return to the otherwise dry, sandy soil. Rare species like the Kirtland’s warbler, found in Michigan’s jack pine forests, likewise depend on the presence of fire in the ecosystem. Michigan hazard reduction burning also enables certified prescribed fire practitioners to help reduce the available fuel for wildfires and keep both the people and animals that call Michigan home safe. Whatever the reason for using prescribed fire, land management professionals seeking to promote the health of the land should first consider protecting themselves and their business with Michigan RX fire insurance.

Michigan Prescribed Burn Insurance
Michigan hazard reduction burning most often occurs in the spring and fall but can happen any time of the year if the appropriate conditions are present. Much of the controlled burns conducted within Michigan are conducted after wildlife biologists and natural resource professionals have evaluated an area to ensure the maximum benefit for the habitat. This careful use of prescribed fire has helped species like the jack pine thrive, as its cones will open for seed release in the presence of extreme heat. When working with nature, even the best laid fire plans can run awry – for times like these it’s best to have a robust Michigan burn-off insurance plan in place. If you’re an environmental consultant, prescribed fire contractor, or other natural resource manager, you can benefit from a Michigan backfire insurance plan.
Michigan Controlled Burn Insurance
With just under 10 million acres of farmland, approximately 60% of which is dedicated to crop production, Michigan landowners should also understand the potential benefits of prescribed burns for their land. Livestock raised on recently burned pastures experience greater growth, and crop trees establish better when competitive species have been removed with controlled burns. Prescribed fire also helps promote the regrowth of warm season and cool season plants, depending on when the burn is conducted. Regardless of if you’re raising cattle or producing the tart cherries Michigan is known for, it’s likely at some point you’ll want to rejuvenate your land with prescribed fire. First consider investing in you and your business’ future with Michigan controlled burn insurance.
