Prescribed burning has been used successfully to manipulate brush in second-growth ponderosa pine to increase desirable plants; to kill mature brush plants; to kill brush seedlings and deplete the amount of seeds in the soil; and, at the same time, to prepare a better seedbed for pine seedling germination.
