Fire also suppresses most brush and cactus species. This bulletin discusses how to plan and implement a prescribed burn, including predicting fire and weather behavior, topography, fuel, firing techniques, fire containment, safety precautions and costs. A graph illustrates factors that influence prescribed burning and a table shows the relationship between range conditions and optimum use of brush management practices.
