Nathan Tucker of the Fort McCoy Directorate of Public Works Environmental Division Natural Resources Branch assists with a prescribed burn on Range 29 in close coordination with the Fort McCoy Fire Department. The controlled burn reduced excess vegetation on the range that may catch on fire during military training and cause interruptions — the actions help units take full advantage of their training opportunities at Fort McCoy. Used as a habitat management tool, controlled burns reduce the costs and time associated with mowing or removing vegetation by hand or reduce environmental effects caused by the use of herbicides to control vegetation. Controlled burns also reduce the risk of large wildfires, especially during drier seasons.
