The most laborious part of burning is establishing firebreaks, which are lanes of bare dirt that flames cannot cross. Most of my firebreaks are 10 to 12 feet wide, and I build them with a tractor, plow, and tiller. If you don’t have access to a tractor and implements, find a buddy who does, rent some equipment, or hire a bulldozer operator for a few hours. The good news is a firebreak will last a lifetime with yearly maintenance, and turkeys love to strut in them. I cut cross-section breaks through my place, too, so that I can burn a couple acres at a time in a checkerboard pattern.
