With private land ownership, people have come to want to control wild fires, but part of what makes the most productive grasslands productive is periodic burning. In this video, watch a controlled prairie burn on Hank Will's property.

In Kansas, pasture burning is a culturally accepted practice and in most counties you needn’t bother looking for a burn permit because there isn’t one. However, you want to check with your local law enforcement agency ahead of any burn to be sure that you can legally do what you want to do. In this video, we burn off about 20 acres of scrub-cedar infested pasture – but before we got started, there was a bit of prep work involved.
