    Texas and Oklahoma use prescribed burning - the planned and deliberate application of fire as a land management tool - for many reasons.
    Prescribed fire is good for:
    • many different types of landscapes and vegetation
    • improved water shed function
    • diversity of plants and trees
    • wildlife habitat
    • rangeland management
    • endangered species management
    • removal of litter, dead debris, brush, fallen trees - understory removal
    • reduction in available fuel for large, intense, rapidly-spreading wildfires
    • soil nutrients
    • carbon storage
    Prescribed fire is good for people too. It takes everyone working together - first responders, local and state officials, and landowners - to keep our landscapes healthy and our citizens and communities safe. Show less
