Prescribed Burning Liability Insurance

THE OUTDOOR UNDERWRITERS PRESCRIBED BURNING INSURANCE PROGRAM

Innovative insurance products designed by foresters for forester; Products backed by Lloyds of London

The team at Outdoor Underwriters has been developing innovative insurance products for foresters and landowners for 20 plus years. All certified or graduate foresters can apply for our commercial general liability insurance. A forester’s special liability form is available with limits up to $1.0 million. The forester’s special liability coverage includes herbicide application, prescribed burn liability, smoke liability and professional errors and omissions.

Additionally, Outdoor underwriters has developed a landowner prescribed burn product previously unavailable in the marketplace. This product is intended to provide liability protection for private landowners that want to conduct a burn on their property.

Master policies can also be issued to consultant foresters and wildlife biologists who burn for multiple landowners. For timberland owners, the premium may even be tax-deductible. You can contact Outdoor Underwriters toll free at 1-866-961-4101.
