Fire Helps Kansas Rancher Restore Redcedar-infested Grasslands

LPCI PRESS RELEASE: When Tom Carr was a boy, redcedars were a rarity on his family’s ranch lands in south-central Kansas. By the early 2000s, cedars had overtaken the grasslands. Through mechanical removal, prescribed fire, and an unexpected scorching from the Anderson Creek wildfire, Tom has removed most redcedars from his land and restored grassland health.
