From the text ... 'Removing American Indians from the land effectively ended wildland burning practices that had lasted for millennia. ...The Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management together administer several hundred million acres of grassland and other grazing land where Indian burning techniques can and should be used. ...In planning, land managers should consider the difficulties inherent in restoring a past 'natural' condition. ...Abdicating management responsibility to let 'nature' do its work--through lightning-caused fires, floods, disease. and insect outbreaks--is not a realistic option.'
