From the text (p.8) ... ''The use of fire is a traditional land management tool,' said Johnny Stowe, chair-elect of the council and DNR wildlife biologist and forester. 'Fire has shaped our state's ecosystems, culture and heritage for thousands of years. It is truly a multi-cultural phenomenon. Native Americans burned the land and the Africans and Europeans brought with them, from the Old World, a tradition of using fire to manage land. In more recent times, when the rest of the nation realized the benefits of prescribed fire, then came to the South to learn how to properly handle it.'' © 2005 Covey Rise.
