Join forestry professionals, the Central Coast Prescribed Burn Association and fire practitioners from around the State as we develop capacity to address California’s wildfire issues. Forester TREX will seek to empower forestry professionals with the understanding necessary to utilize “good fire” in your practice of stewarding California’s diverse forests.

Forester TREX participants will engage in 4 days of burning and instruction in a commercial Redwood Forest, focusing on prep work, Rx fire operations and mop up. See the Forester TREX explainer for more details.

In addition to burning, there will extensive discussion, presentations, exercises, and tours on important subjects such as:
-History of burning in CA forests
-Forestry specific factors: stocking rates, waterways, funding, CEQA, pre/post treatments
-How to implement a burn: unit design, permits, funding, implementation and VTPs
-Tribal and ecological considerations

Signing up: Registration fee is $390 (includes food/ camping). Due to a generous donation
from BurnBot, scholarships may be available upon request. Applications are competitive, and
as such priority will be given to CA forestry professionals.
