Colleen McGuire Norris commented on Jo Ann Fites-Kaufman's blog post Is fire bad or good?
"I got a chance to look over the chart Eric added on March 13. Looks like the Native Americans and the Harvesters saved us from some wildfires in the past. There must be a strategy that could incorporate all historic scenarios to manage fire better."
