The Role of Prescribed Fire in Mitigating Catastrophic Wildfires

    A short article about Prescribed Burn Associations (PBAs) in Texas. “PBAs share resources, knowledge and expertise within the cooperative and serve to increase the application of planned prescribed fires, enhancing agricultural production and wildlife habitat.” (Gutierrez and Hays, 2012).  The article also includes a map of PBAs in Texas.
