FLORENCE – On Monday, Pee Dee Clemson Research and Education Center carried out a prescribed burn to a Loblolly forest totalling approximately 40-acres.

Smoke could be seen from miles away during certain parts of the day. A prescribed burn is a controlled fire that is done to maintain good wildlife habitat. The fire kills wood brush that closes off the canopy floor and controls hardwoods that compete with pine trees for nutrients and sun light.
