What is the going rate for getting someone to come out and perform a good burn?

Just to burn is around $20/acre as I recall. Dozer work is more.

I usually tell people $15/acre but prefer to look at the job first, at least on an aerial photo to see what's adjacent to the burn area. We burn some larger acreage tracts for less than $15 per acre for landowners who are on a burn rotation and burn hundreds of acres each year.
The forestry commission charges $20 for understory and $25 for site prep burning (you can find their rates on the AFC website.) This does not include the cost to install firebreaks. I would figure an additional $20-$25 for new fire breaks if you want them nice enough to maintain with a tractor in the future.

Bw is right. You might find some lower but rarely. Most are between $15-$20 plus firelane work.

Call your county extension office. They may be able to set something up.

We are enrolled in a CSP program through NRCS, so they cut us a check every year to do stuff like this. Definitely helps lighten the financial load, but I still want to make sure I am getting a good deal.

I’m guessing somebody lost their tail on that deal

The only time I've ever heard of per acre cost that low is on large quail plantations where you can burn several hundred acres a day. With fire lanes included I don't see how anyone could make anything especially if it wasn't a really large tract. Even $16/acre would be cheap if it included fire lanes.

It was 750 acres and it is contracted to burn again at the same rate in 2019 so I don't guess they came out too bad.

What area was that? Depending on the tract that could still be good or bad

I would suspect some program burn? If so the rest of us paid for the residual $10/ac the burner got paid.

No program. Simply open market bidding.

Sound awful cheap for someone that has a dozer, lo boy, insurance, burning equipment and the knowledge to do the burn correctly. They could raise their price $10/ac with lanes included and still probably win the bid. Whoever your client is getting that price is a lucky guy.

Having my own equipment and crew it cost me several times that to burn my own property. There’s gotta be more to the story than just $6/ac or the guy just loves paying you to burn your property. I don’t see how you could get close to breakeven at $6. My actual out of pocket expense is closer to $15/ac not including fire lanes. Our fire lanes cost several thousand dollars per mile to install, and that’s me operating my own dozer.
