A controlled burn is an incredible management tool for warm season grass stands. Over time, woody species and undesirables inevitably will begin to appear in stands these stands. The best way to combat them is through the use of fire. When done correctly, it will eliminate the tops and expose the dark soil to allow the sun to hit it and warm quickly. The quick increase in soil temperature will allow the new generation of warm season grasses to flush and in no time you’ll have a green mat of grasses ready to provide great wildlife habitat.
