I was watching The Weather Channel the other day and was surprised to see a whole segment on the gaining popularity of prescribed fire. They said the reason for the massive wildfires in the west and the invasive species problem in the east is partly to blame by the absence of low intensity winter fires. It was explained how much of the N.American continent is naturally fire dependent. For too long we have listened to Smokey the bear and had the idea that all fire is bad. I truly believe the only way to control invasives in forests (at least in the south) is by this method. Herbicides simply are too costly and often don't work. I hope more is done to educate the public on this important issue in the future.
