Revitalizing Forests and Keeping Communities Safe with Prescribed Fire

The Moore Charitable Foundation promotes the use of prescribed burning to restore forests, maintain clean water and lower the risk of wildfire. Prescribed burning is the practice of deliberately setting and carefully managing fires under strict conditions approved and monitored by firefighting professionals. A centuries-old tradition, today the practice is used to protect and refresh forests by removing the dense vegetation build-up in a forest’s understory that fuels large wildfires. This also allows for indigenous plants and wildlife to thrive, restoring a more natural and diverse ecosystem.
