Range Improvements

There are two kinds of range improvements: nonstructural and structural.  Seedings or prescribed burns are examples of nonstructural range improvements.  Fences or facilities, such as wells or water pipelines, are examples of structural improvements.  

Many structural improvements are considered permanent, as they are not easily removed from the land.  Such improvements enhance livestock grazing management, improve watershed conditions, enhance wildlife habitat, or serve similar purposes.
