Description

From the text ... 'The primary objective of prescribed burning on forest recreation areas in New Jersey is to reduce the probability of their destruction by wildfire. Investigation has shown that when uncontrolled fires enter treated areas they do much less damage and suppression work is made easier and more effective. A second purpose is to favor wildlife, as well as hunting, by developing an interspersion of different food and cover conditions.'
