PARK PRESCRIBED BURN INFORMATION BLOG

Pilot Mountain State Park uses prescribed fire or controlled burns as a management tool to restore healthy forest and grassland communities and to reduce woody fuel in the event of a wildfire. Historically, most areas of the landscape of the Piedmont of North Carolina experienced low to moderate severity fires from lightning on average once every five years. Information gathered from fire scars and tree rings on Pilot Mountain indicate that fire was at least that frequent on the exposed portions of the mountain.
