Hardeeville in Jasper County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Using Fire to Beneﬁt Wildlife
One the most effective tools is prescribed burning – the planned application of controlled fire, under appropriate condition, for specific purposes. Here, burning is used to eliminate invasive and exotic perennial such as cattails, cut-grass species, and rattle-bush. Annual plants soon colonize the bare soil and yield seeds of higher value to wildlife. Burning also removes tons of dry, dead vegetation that could fuel a destructive wildfire.
