Overview

"In the pages of this book, leading range management professionals introduce and explain not only the mechanisms of managing brush but also the changes in management philosophy and technology that have taken place over time. From the futile attempts at eradication to the successes of integrated brush management, expert practitioners examine mechanical, biological, chemical, and fire-related methods from three perspectives - the past, the present or "state-of-the-art" and the future. In a final discussion, three specialists address the timely and important subject of brush management as it relates to water yield, economics, and wildlife." Available statistics generally show an increase in the major problem species, such as juniper and honey mesquite, on Texas rangelands. But those who plan brush management in a systematic way, apply the correct treatment, and follow up properly can "beat the odds" and gain both technically and economically successful results.
