Prescribed fire is a tool that landowners can use to control woody encroachment into the Nebraska Sandhills. With proper planning and execution, this tool effectively reduces the spread of Eastern Red Cedar. The Sandhills Task Force has resources available to help landowner use fire to meet their conservation goals.
