Seeding After Fire

Tipton D. Hudson ,

Wild fires and prescribed fires alike often leave behind a lot of exposed, bare soil that is then prone to erosion. To stabilize the soil and prevent erosion, new vegetation must be established as soon as possible.

This publication explains the necessary conditions for successful reseeding of fire-ravaged terrain, including identifying site and soil problems and competing weeds, as well as choosing species to reseed and methods of reseeding. It lists recommended plant species to reseed in the Intermountain West and additional resources for more information.
