Prescribed fire is a land management tools used to restore and maintain wildlife populations. Fire increases the productivity and nutritional value of native rangelands. However, it is unknown how best to apply fire (e.g., season and burn return interval) to coastal rangelands along the southern Gulf Coast to maximize benefits to cattle and wildlife.
East Foundation has initiated an operational-scale, long-term study on our El Sauz Ranch to determine:
The ultimate goal of this work is to produce prescribed fire recommendations for coastal rangelands in South Texas. This knowledge will equip landowners to apply fire to their lands for maximum benefit.
