RX Fire Insurance for Associations from Forest Specialty

RX Fire Insurance for Associations from Forest Specialty

Prescribed fire and other hazard reduction burning activities are powerful, cost-effective tools to help promote the health and well-being of an environment. Many ecosystems across the U.S. are fire-adapted, meaning that they thrive best when exposed to fire – some species like the lodgepole pine need exposure to fire to activate their seeds and propagate the species. Prairies and grasslands have historically been managed with controlled burns, and now face a loss of area due to the encroachment of non-prairie or non-grassland species. Prescribed fire can help mitigate this encroachment while simultaneously enriching the grassland or prairie and encouraging new, healthier growth.


Interest in habitat restoration and ecosystem health has never been higher, which is why Forest Specialty is proud to offer RX fire insurance and controlled burn insurance to associations dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of habitat like South Central Texas Prescribed Burn Association and Edwards Prescribed Burning Associates. With over 15 years of experience in the industry, we’re familiar with the challenges faced by prescribed burn associations and design our burn-off insurance to help meet and mitigate them. Investing in comprehensive, quality backfire insurance for your association ensures that you can focus on providing guidance on your members’ fire plans and ensuring that everyone involved in the burn is properly educated and trained.
