These burns provide for the long-term study of invasive plant management and contribute to hazardous fuels reduction. The treatments will help to enhance the health of the native plant communities, aid in the control of non-native plant species, protect and enhance habitat for multiple animal species, and aid in the reduction of hazardous wildland fuels.
