Eastern red cedars are taking over many acres of the Nebraska Sandhills and robbing ranchers of forage and disrupting native plant and animal populations. Prescribed fire is a great tool that can be used to control invasive cedar trees. Click on the links below for the prescribed burn plan template and more information on the VFD Prescribed Burn Award.
The Nature Conservancy puts out a prescribed burn newsletter “Addressing Eastern Red Cedar in the Sandhills” every month. We will post a link to the most recent edition. To subscribe please contact Ashley Oblander at Ashley.Oblander@tnc.org
