Fire - a poorly understood ecological tool

Our knowledge of how to use fire as an ecological tool has improved dramatically over the past decade or so.The link below will take you to a page where the Michigan DNR explains why fire is so important to certain ecosystems - like that of the jack pine outwash plains of Northern Michigan.
