Forest Service Shows Landowners How to Restore Burned Land

The Texas Forest Service is stepping up to help east Texas landowners whose property has been burned in recent wild fires.  TFS will hold a free workshop next week on how that land can be restored.

Since the start of the fire season last November, wild fires have burned more than 3 million acres of forests and grasslands, destroyed homes and forced hundreds of people to evacuate.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that most of the fires are now almost contained, and most of the charred land can be restored to its natural state.

That’s the subject of a TFS informational workshop named “After the Fire”. It will cover issues such as planting, arson awareness and fire safety principles.

TFS will have representatives from the Big Thicket National Park Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Texas AgriLife Extension Service and The Campbell Group on hand to answer questions.

The experts will cover topics such as planting, arson awareness, assistance from NRCS and “Firewise” safety principles.  A TFS official says “We want to let citizens know what resources are available to them as they recover from these tragic wildfires.”
