    Description

    Prescribed burning is an effective way of restoring the fire process to ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Doug I. ex Laws.) ecosystems of the Southwest. If used judiciously, fire can provide valuable effects for hazard reduction, natural regeneration, thinning, vegetation revitalization, and in general, better forest health. Relatively short burning intervals are required to maintain the benefits of fire.
