The total plant richness observed in August in the three forage types reached 58 species. Plant richness remained the same in the grazed or ungrazed forest. Granger indicated Forest Service personnel would still be welcome to handle classes dealing with forest conservation or other relevant topics.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Halls, Lowell K., Grazed firebreaks in Southern forests. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service. Grazed firebreaks are open strips of improved pasture with a twofold value.

First, they help to stop or slow down the spread of forest fire, provide a strip from which to backfire when making prescribed burns or attcking wildfires and serve as access roads for deployment of men and equipment. Second, they benefit livestock and game by producing good forage during a large part.

A firebreak is a gap in vegetation or other combustible material that acts as a barrier to slow or stop the progress of a bushfire or wildfire.A firebreak may occur naturally where there is a lack of vegetation or "fuel", such as a river, lake or eaks may also be man-made, and many of these also serve as roads, such as a logging road, four-wheel drive trail, secondary road, or a.

Access roads, vegetated firebreaks, and either plowed or disked firebreaks can be used in all forest types. Pasture firebreaks are restricted to pine forest types. Erosion must be controlled on firebreaks. Vegetated and plowed or disked firebreaks should be located: 1.

The Forest Service and Environmental Debate In the Forest Service was charged by law with management of the national forests according to a philosophy of sustained yield and multiple use: production of timber, preservation of fish and wildlife habitat, watershed maintenance, mining, grazing, and recreation.

always new snacks to try. Transects were placed in grazed areas and in areas where grazing was experimentally excluded. Areas were sampled semi-annually for 2 years to examine germination (seedling density in Spring) and establishment (seedling density in Autumn).

In grasslands, seedlings were present only near the forest edge. Natural forests have a large internal resistance when it comes to fire. Their rich, complex makeup and wide species variation in flammability makes it harder for flames to spread quickly.

In addition, pressure by large grazing animals in open spaces and strips in the forest, act as natural firebreaks.Firebreaks may be temporary or permanent Mow, disk, or graze vegetative firebreaks to avoid a build-up of excess litter.
