After the 2003 Fire: Revegetation and Recovery

In the wake of the disastrous wildfires of 2003, much has been written on what to do now--about revegetation, whether to seed, how to prevent erosion. There is much scientific evidence that most native vegetation will recover on its own and that seeding with non-native annual grasses can be harmful. CNPS has developed policies and guidelines on shrubland management and fire safety. Links to those as well as other resources and studies are included below.
