Firelane & Dozier Work

Firelanes and Dozier work are both important aspects of forestry management that help to prevent and manage wildfires. At M & W Forestry Consultants use firelanes and Dozier work as part of their overall strategy to reduce the risk of wildfires and protect natural resources.

Firelanes are designated strips of land that are cleared of vegetation and other combustible materials to create a barrier or access route for firefighting vehicles and personnel. They are typically located around the perimeter of a property or forested area and are designed to slow down or stop the spread of a wildfire. Firelanes can also be used as access routes for other forestry management activities such as timber harvesting or wildlife management.

Dozier work refers to the use of heavy equipment such as bulldozers or skid steers to create fire breaks or clear areas of land for firelanes. Dozier work is typically done in advance of fire season or in preparation for prescribed burns to help reduce the risk of wildfires. It can also be used to create access routes for forestry management activities or to remove hazardous trees or other vegetation.
