Is it too late to doa controlled burn? I have some property I recently purchased and it needs burning. Wait until next spring or wait for the right conditions and burn now? Thanks

Better check the overall burn bans the state puts on during these months first.

Assuming there’s not a burn ban, what conditions would you want to burn. Humidity level?

I would start with calling your county forester and let him offer local advice. He should have a list of certified burners in your county. Just in my opinion, I wouldn't touch a match to the woods this time of year and I would hesitate to burn at most time of the year.

Somebody did a burn off of 331 a week or two ago in some big pines that are thick with sweetgums. It looks like it was a really good burn, and the gums are all torched.

It makes you scratch your head, hardwood pulp prices are better than pine and sweetgum logs are bringing a good price.

I believe Gobblers crew did that for Jerry Kyser.

Assuming no bans go out for Montgomery county this week we plan to burn about 120ac of 30yr old pines that have a heavy gum presence on Wednesday. Hoping it will really help the turkey next spring on this particular spot.

I would assume most burns are done for wildlife purposes. If it was strictly for timber value wouldnt spraying be better

Depending on your objectives and the stand it is technically never to late. You can burn the right tract anytime of the year.

Just do what I do. Park your truck in some dry sage, walk about 1/2 mile and notice the smoke.
Then panic and run to frantically save your truck, damn near have a heat stroke trying to fight the fire on your own, then dial 911.

I know it's not funny, but I couldn't help but chuckle when I read this.
