Fuels programs like those conducted by the BLM Cedar City Field Office help restore thousands of acres charred each year by wildfires. Lands that might not otherwise become restored naturally.   Wildfire consume hundreds of acres of public lands each year but agency work by the BLM help restore these lands Restoration is just one of many aspects of fire mitigation the BLM conducts

Restoration
The Cedar City Fuels program implements emergency stabilization and post-fire rehabilitation plans on public lands within the counties of for Beaver, Iron, Garfield, Kane and Washington.

Emergency stabilization and post-fire rehabilitation work improves public lands that are unlikely to recover naturally from the effects of wildfires. Emergency stabilization treatments are essential to protecting lives and properties surrounding burned areas.  

This work, often implemented over the course of several years following a wildfire, includes invasive plant treatments, replanting and reseeding with native or other desirable vegetation, road and trail rehabilitation, fence replacement as well as wildlife habitat restoration and reforestation. Emergency stabilization and post-fire rehabilitation is done to support the goals set forth by the National Fire Plan.

Due to the amount of rangeland managed by the Cedar City Field Office, replanting and reseeding of burnt areas is our main focus during stabilization.
