For thousands of years the native people of California used fire as a tool to manage the lands and maintain healthy trees. Now-a-days, faced with the fact that we can no longer set fire to the land because of heavy fuel buildup from years of fire suppression, we must use alternatives, such as fire mimicry methods, in our work to keep California’s trees healthy.  Today I’m posting some recent results of fire mimicry treatments in restoring oak, pine, and toyon health.

Enjoy!
