Abstract:
Powell discusses myths people have about prescribed burning, or the controlled burning of woodlands. One is that fire sterilizes the land; another is that animals do not know what to do in a fire. Actually fires help restore the ecosystem. Fire burning resources available to landowners include the Forest Resources Commission and private foresters.

Fire, once considered a villain in the forest, is now used by biologists to enhance many wildlife species and to help in forest restoration. Prescribed, or controlled, burning thins forests of competing underbrush, prepares good seedbeds for replanting in logged areas, and eliminates fire danger by eliminating fuel buildup.
