Georgia’s Smoke Management Plan


Georgia’s Smoke Management Plan (SMP) is the State’s basic framework of procedures and requirements for managing smoke from prescribed fires. Prescribed burning is the controlled application of fire to existing vegetative fuels to accomplish planned land management objectives or to mitigate catastrophic wildfires.

Prescribed burning is also important for forest regeneration, improving wildlife habitat, and recovering imperiled species.  Learn more here »
