Post Fire Management Checklist Mobile App

The Post Fire Management Checklist mobile app provides checklist of considerations for post-fire management. All may appear lost, but with time and rain, pastures burned by recent fires will come back stronger if cattle are not restocked too early. The loss of standing vegetation affects not only the availability of feed for livestock, but also feed and cover including nesting habitat for wildlife. The fire also removed litter and standing vegetation that protected the soil from water and wind erosion. With few exceptions, the plants are still alive and will recover. Recovery may take a few months to a couple of years, depending on the climate and management of the areas. Management should focus on maintaining and improving plant vigor, rebuilding soil protection, and allowing for recovery of wildlife habitat and forage for livestock production.
