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.
