I see landowner liability and prescribed fire standards as impediments for landowners.

I got a quote to burn and it was $14,000 for about 30 acres of old fields in Potter Co Pa, which is far above my budget

Is there a list of certified burn consultants for PA? Is it publicly available?

Not that I'm aware of. I only know of one company that does it

NRCS Tech Reg has a publicly-available list, but is national and only has two contractors on it, including Silvix. https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/main/national/programs/technical/tsp/

The biggest barrier I am aware of is finding a Burn Boss/ company who can work within Pa on private lands.

sorry, accident, but we burn on private lands outside standards, and we fear being ostracized from the PA Prescribed Fire community because of it
Mike Koneski

We burn on our 110 acres. Maybe a maximum of 10 acres per year, most of in NWSG. We have green and bear earth firebreaks in place and follow weather conditions . We have suppression equipment too but I am not a burn boss. We will continue to burn safely.

Peter, I did my masters in South Carolina, and when we burned down there all we had to do was call in to the DNR and check to make sure the wind and weather conditions were good then we lit up ~40 acres of pine.

From what I understand, the majority of bun bosses in PA are state agency employees, thus to burn on private lands currently you pretty much have to be a state agency employee
