Texas: Prescribed Burning – Liability, Insurance Facts

My friend and colleague, Dr. Morgan Russell, and I recently published a fact sheet looking at liability and insurance considerations when conducting a prescribed burn.

With burning being a popular grassland management technique across Texas, landowners should take the time to understand the law regarding liability in the event a burn gets out of control and causes damage, to carefully review and comply with Texas’ limited liability statute for prescribed burning, and ensure they have adequate insurance coverage in case the worst does occur.

This fact sheet walks landowners through each of these considerations.
