Legal Issues Surrounding Prescribed Burning

I recently wrote an article that was published in Progressive Cattleman discussing liability considerations for landowners when using prescribed burns. The article discusses different legal approaches that states take to potential liability if damage results from a prescribed burn and discusses the need for landowners considering burns to carefully review and understand their states’ statutory provisions related to prescribed burning.  (To view the statutory provision related to prescribed burn liability in Texas, click here.)
